In this week’s blog post from your community of San Antonio luxury apartments, we’ll be talking about the parks and outdoor spaces that surround Echelon at Monterrey Village. If you can deal with the heat of a San Antonio summer, we hope you find some time to explore incredible parks that this city has to offer. The parks in San Antonio are perfect for all kinds of outdoor activities, whether you’re taking your dog for a long walk, going for a quick jog, or trying to get the kids tired by bringing them to the playground.
Without further delay, let’s take a look at the list of the city’s top-rated parks, shall we? When you’re done reading this the list below, please be sure to share the link with your friends and neighbors at your community of apartments in Westover Hills!
There aren’t many parks that can boast a spring-fed swimming pool, but San Pedro Springs Park isn’t like most parks! This gorgeous green space is located a couple miles north of downtown San Antonio, so you can get there pretty easily as long as the traffic cooperates. The park’s claim to fame is that it’s actually the second oldest park in the United States! Now that you know that, you’ve got to go check out the pool, sculptures and historical markers in this park.
With 21-acres of green space, this is one of the larger parks in the city of San Antonio. Denman Estate Park also has one of the coolest buildings in San Antonio — the Korean Pavillion that was gifted to San Antonio by the city of Gwangju, South Korea. The pavillion os gorgeous, and it’s worth a visit even if you do nothing else in the park. Fortunately, the park does have other activity options like feeding ducks in the pond, riding a bike around the paths and eating at the shaded picnic tables.
If you’re in the mood to go hiking, you can’t do much better than Eisenhower Park. Hikers love this park because it’s a bike-free zone, and it’s nice to be able to hike without being worried about being plowed over by a mountain biker. The trails in this park climb to the top of a peak, where you’ll see an observation deck that offers beautiful views of the surrounding area. Eisenhower Park is also dog-friendly, so you can feel free to bring your pup here for some exercise next time it starts scratching at the door to go outside!
If you’re looking for a park where your kids can play, be sure to bring your little ones to the amazing playground at MacArthur Park. Whether you’re hanging out with a toddler or an older kid, the playground at MacArthur Park can provide equipment and activities that kids of any age will enjoy. In addition to the lovely playground, MacArthur Park also has a ton of picnic areas where adults can hang out while the kids run around.
