Walk it all, the pearl section the hemisphere park section the river center section and all the restaurants section you will love it, all restaurants are awesome and have a great view, great for an afternoon walk...
It is truly beautiful & you can walk from the King Williams Historic District, enjoying nature up to the centre where it hustles & bustles with nice restaurants & various shops or visa versa.

Mission San Jose (5.4mi, 8.7k) – Open 9am to 5pm, this is a large, well preserved mission and the home of the San Antonio Missions National Historic Park with an excellent, large visitor center.
A MUST visit to see the unrestored chapel....simply amazing, the park rangers gave a fantastic overview of the Missions and their history.

Passed waterfalls, rock paths over the river, parks, historic bridges, local art, La Villarita - a historic Mexican Mission area, and wandered through streets of unique and beautiful mansions.
The central loop is loaded with restaurants and honky tonk places but the trails north and south are great for hiking and biking to places like the missions, King William district, and Brackenridge park.

Something different but fun with fam! Taking in nature and discovering God creation is amazing!
There is a huge lighted tree, carolers roaming the park, a really cute maze where you have to find all of the reindeer, and best of all, choirs inside the caverns.

... the atmosphere --it's good for BBQs, picnics, biking, hiking, romantic strolls or just to sit and read by many of the old trees, plus the famous SA zoo is adjacent to park (and the SA river runs through it also!)
... Park, a couple of miles north of downtown, has lots to offer: beautiful trails for walking or biking, a river with ducks to feed, an adjacent golf course and a mini-train that takes families through the park.

From trails to nature views, outdoor art and adding some exercise while at it, it's the most rewarding experience you can have in San Antonio!!!
There are a number of parks and walking trails in San Antonio but one of our treasures is Phil Hardberger Park, with entrances on Blance Rd or NW Military Dr.

There are plenty of biking and hiking trails, lots of soccer fields and baseball fields, covered pavillions, dog park and playground for younger children in the front along with restrooms.
There are a lot of cool trails, the scenery is beautiful, and the park is pretty clean and well maintained.

Easily missed, The Travis Park Plaza, is a lovely park in the shape of a city square.
My wife and I live in San Antonio and we wanted to see the city's Christmas Tree which for this year was in Travis Park instead of in Alamo Plaza as in years past.
