There’s something about a pumpkin patch: the cheery bright and bold colors of fall signaling the changing of the seasons; the excitement of selecting just the right pumpkins for our porch; the anticipation of what we’ll carve into them as we celebrate the spookiest of all holidays.
In San Antonio you can find pumpkin patches all over town, at churches, on street corners, even at schools. Here are our family’s three favorite pumpkin patches in and around the Alamo City. I’ve also included links at the end of this post that list other pumpkin patches around town and, I’d love for you to share your favorite local pumpkin patches in the comments. Happy Halloween!
Bracken United Methodist Church Pumpkin Patch
More than 15,000 pumpkins fill this shady, country-style pumpkin patch. There are many fall- and Halloween-themed photo backdrops and cutouts throughout this patch, as well as hay rides, wagons you can borrow to cart around your pumpkins, and a tiny train for tots to ride.

In addition to selling pumpkins of every size and providing lots of cute fall photo opportunities, this patch has a mini-maze for little ones to navigate, a scarecrow, a bean bag toss, and a metal tub filled with corn for play or adorable photos.

Alamo Heights United Methodist Church Pumpkin Patch
This simple pumpkin patch holds a special place in my heart because it’s the first one we took our daughter to when she was just seven months old (and sporting a ridiculously cute lobster costume). While there aren’t rides or games or mazes, a sea of pumpkins, of all sizes and shapes, covers the little field on one side of this beautiful church, topped with two spires, which provides a unique backdrop for fall family pics.

9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Location: 825 E. B asse Road, San Antonio, Texas, 78209
