Elmendorf Lake Park in San Antonio, Texas (#10 for #SA2020Resolutions)

Elmendorf Lake Park, San Antonio, Texas

Park #10 in our family’s #SA2020Resolutions quest to visit 20 parks in 2014, is Elmendorf Lake Park. It hasn’t escaped my attention that, in blog posts anyway, we are halfway to our goal. In reality, we’ve visited 16 parks but my blogging needs to catch up to reflect that! Our visit to Elmendorf Lake Park […]

Chris Park in San Antonio, Texas (#9 for #SA2020Resolutions)

Chris Park in San Antonio, Texas

Only a mother’s abiding love could produce a park this beautiful. In the middle of downtown San Antonio, if you know just where to look, you’ll find small, tranquil, lushly landscaped Chrispark. Built in 2005 at 111 Camp Street by the late Linda Pace, an art patron and daughter of the Pace Picante Sauce family, Chrispark […]

Landa Library Park in San Antonio, Texas (#7 for #SA2020Resolutions)

Landa Library Park, #7 of 20 parks we're visiting in San Antonio in 2014 as part of #SA2020Resolutions

Having to pick your favorite park in San Antonio would be like having to pick your favorite child – it can’t be done. Each child (park?) has special qualities that come together to make him/her (it?) a unique and treasured individual (or park). But, if I HAD to pick a favorite park in San Antonio – not […]

San Pedro Springs Park in San Antonio, Texas (#6 for #SA2020Resolutions)

Visiting San Pedro Springs Park in San Antonio, the second oldest park in the country

  Y’all. I’m way behind on sharing my family’s #SA2020 Resolutions park adventures with you. Today I realized it’s been FOUR months since I last posted about a park. We’re still visiting parks. I just haven’t taken the time to share them with you here. *Bad Blogger!* The last park I wrote about was Eisenhower […]

Eisenhower Park in San Antonio, Texas (#5 for #SA2020Resolutions)

Eisenhower Park in San Antonio, Texas

This year my family and I are the Outdoorsy Ambassadors for SA2020 Resolutions. We’ve resolved to visit 20 San Antonio Parks in 2014. This is our fifth park this year! With over five miles of paved and unpaved trails and a hilltop view of downtown San Antonio off to its south, Eisenhower Park, located on 19399 […]

O.P. Schnabel Park in San Antonio, Texas (#4 for #SA2020Resolutions)

O.P. Schnabel Park in San Antonio, Texas - part of the #SA2020Resolutions project

Located on the northwest side of San Antonio, off of Bandera Road, O.P. Schnabel Park lies on just 200 acres, but it has just as much to offer as some of San Antonio’s larger parks (maybe even more with a YMCA on site!). On the Sunday we visited, it was full of families, dogs, runners, and […]

Walker Ranch Park in San Antonio, Texas (#3 for #SA2020Resolutions)

Walker-Ranch-Park-windmill-2

Sometimes, visiting a park more than once is the only way to discover everything it has to offer. This is the case with Walker Ranch Park, located off of West Avenue (and underneath the flight path of San Antonio International Airport). At first glance it appears to be a small park, primarily frequented by parents […]

Hardberger Park in San Antonio, Texas (#2 for #SA2020Resolutions)

Visiting Hardberger Park in San Antonio, Texas

With over 185 parks and greenways in San Antonio, it’s tough to decide which park to visit next. As we work toward our goal of visiting 20 parks in 2014, our family plans to visit as many new-to-us parks as we can. Park #2, Phil Hardberger Park, is one we’ve wanted to visit for a […]

McAllister Park in San Antonio, Texas (#1 of 20 for #SA2020Resolutions)

McAllister Park in San Antonio

The first park of twenty we visited this year as part of our #SA2020Resolutions was McAllister Park. But it’s not a stretch for us to go there. It’s practically across the street so we get to play there all year long. McAllister has everything we want in a park: soccer fields; playgrounds; 15 miles of trails, both paved […]
