What a cool place for kids and to break away from El Mercado. This park is just North of El Mercado (next to Children's Hospital). The park has a really clean playground with many cool bits to it. The park is lined with cool cast iron benches and lampposts which are ornate and clean. While the ambulances and firetrucks are... More

After a day of taking in the sights of San Antonio and grabbing a super burger for dinner we were walking back to the hotel. It was a steamy September evening as the sun was going down and we were both tired and hot. It seemed like a long walk and then we turned a corner and came across a... More

Not in a great part of the city. It's a small park. Not much to do. There is a small playground for kids.

The park is near El Mercado and San Rosa Childrens Hospital (where the mural is located). However, it was full of homeless people and although that really didn't bother me (use... More

Its full of homeless men and drifters. You wouldnt want to park your car on that lot and you would not take your children there to play.

This is a small park situated just outside of El Mercado. There are nice statues, a lovely gazebo and graceful benches to rest after shopping. Be aware that since this is right downtown, there is a fairly sizable homeless population that inhabit the park. It is very sad and some people might find this a bit off-putting but it is... More
