|About these ratings|
When the River Walk seems too busy, seek refuge from the heat and the swarms of tourists in Brackenridge Park. Its 343 acres offer much in the way of relaxation: rustic stone bridges and shaded walkways that are perfect for strolling, and the Japanese Tea Gardens and San Antonio Botanical Gardens that beckon to botanists. Dress casual so you can take advantage of Brackenridge's jogging trails, golf course and athletic fields, or let your kids take a spin on the carousel and the miniature train. The park also hosts outdoor concerts in the natural Sunken Garden Theater. You'll also find popular attractions like the San Antonio Zoo and the McNay Art Museum inside the park.
Brackenridge Park sits north of Downtown San Antonio in the Alamo Heights Area and is open everyday from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m.. Entry to the park is free, but specific sites within the park may charge admission. For more information about activities and upcoming events, check out the Brackenridge Park website.
