Landa Library Park, one of our family’s favorite places to play in San Antonio, has a brand new look. Modern playscapes (one with a zipline-like feature) and more shade over them are the stars of this renovation, making a great park for kids (ages 0-12) even better.
If you haven’t played at Landa Library Park with your kids yet, you now have more reasons to go. Not only does this naturally shady park have plenty of bench seating, a medieval community garden, grassy areas for running and picnics, and well-kept water fountains. It’s also the front yard of a lovely and historic branch of the San Antonio library. If your kids get a bit hot playing on a Summer (or, heck, Fall) day, step inside for an air conditioned break. The library has an excellent children’s book area complete with a Spanish language section. And every mom (and dad) will appreciate the access to clean bathrooms.
Landa Library provides a variety of story times and family events throughout the year. And, on Wednesday, October 12, the San Antonio community is invited to new Landa Playground Dedication.

I love the Landa Library playground!
Claire, we do too. We drive across town just to play there!
The new playground equipment is lovely. However a few moms have commented to me that they miss the older gym set (the one with the tunnel) for the 1-3 year olds. The playscape for 2-5 year olds is just a little too advanced if you have a 2 yr old. There is worry that they’ll fall off the playscape where there is a gap to climb down the pole. 🙁
Ellen, my kids are now 3 and 6 but for years they crawled through that tunnel and I remember the old playground equipment for younger ones was nice and safe. Now that you mention it, the new equipment is a bit more challenging for young ones. I hope it doesn’t deter parents of young ones. It’s such a pretty park!
