San Pedro Springs Park
One of the oldest parks in the United States, San Pedro Springs Park offers a timeless escape in the heart of San Antonio. It spans 46 acres, surrounding the natural springs that served as San Antonio’s birthplace. Before Spanish colonists arrived, the site was home to a Papaya Indian village called Yanaguana, and the park boasts archaeological evidence of human presence dating back as far as 12,000 years. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, the park has modern amenities, including a gazebo and swimming pool. The San Pedro Library and the San Pedro Playhouse are also on site.
