Park #14 in our #SA2020Resolutions quest to visit 20 San Antonio parks in 2014 is Olmos Park.
Vast at just over 1,000 acres, varied in its offerings (60 picnic tables, a pavilion, softball/football/soccer fields, a paved trail and a nature trail, and a playground), and cool and shady with oak trees all around, Olmos Park has something for everyone in the family.
Olmos Park is located on Devine Street in Olmos Basin, just east of 281 and south of the Quarry shopping center. As with many of the larger parks we’ve visited this year, we weren’t able to see all of this park in just one visit.
But we did spend some time following the paved trail that leads around the soccer fields.
And my kids loved running across the bridge and exploring the playground underneath a canopy of mature trees.
On our next visit to Olmos Park we’ll definitely check out the nature trail. What’s your favorite feature of Olmos Park?

Olmos Park is amazing because you can use it so many different ways. We’ve climbed on the playground, gone pedaling along the paths, and walking along the trails. Last month, we met up with friends from my son’s school to cheer for the middle school football team — this is where their football and cross country teams practice.
Where is the playground located? It is a huge park.
