Good park overall, good for running. But as a scenery type of person who like to take photos, not many.

Start early and bring lots of water! Also be sure to make the final hike up to the base of the lighthouse if you can.

Flat ground. Dirt trails and cement trails. Watch out for construction. Scenic and fresh. Water smelled a little. circles by the power plant.

Great park to get out and enjoy some nature. The park and trails are well kept and clean. Being new to San Antonio I wanted to get out with my wife and enjoy a good walk. Plenty of trials and paths to take and just enjoy being outside.

It was a good hike. The saw mill is really spooky. I wouldn't joke out there by myself. Also, there isn't really a waterfall. I'm guessing what everyone is referring to as a "waterfall" is near the beginning of the hike there is a small spillover on the creek. Pretty disappointing for my 9 year old daughter who was expecting much more.

The bike trails are very tight alot of turns corners very very tight small space. In my opinion not for mountain bikes more of a nature trail. I completed the mountain bike trail in 20 mins. Probably not coming back to this park to ride.

Great short walk, good shoes recommended.
We took a walk along the creek bed and found rocks with imprints of ancient plants and sealift and even a mark that looked like a dinosaur's foot print

Very cool trail and pretty well maintained. I hiked loops A, B, C, and D. Temperatures ranged from 98-102 but the tree cover made hiking in the heat easier. One bridge is out on loop B. Terrain and elevation change made this trail challenging but very enjoyable.
