Already one of the Southside’s favorite amenities, Pearsall Park “will soon undergo a transformation that is expected to turn it into a premier spot for relaxation and recreation,” said FOX San Antonio.
Expansion of the 500-acre park will introduce the largest playground in all of the city, a skate park, a fitness area, and two splash pads—a first for a San Antonio park. The Bexar Witness reported that the park is also slated to have “traveling rings, which only three other U.S. cities have outdoors for public use.” City officials held a groundbreaking ceremony earlier this month.
“This is a real triumph to see features you can’t find anywhere else in the city being incorporated into a South Side park,” said District 4 Councilman Rey Saldaña in the Bexar Witness. “This will truly become a destination park that everyone in the city can take advantage of.”
Currently the park features a 1.5-acre fenced, off-leash dog park, a disc golf course, and fully enclosed running courses. “Pearsall Park is the only park in San Antonio that can offer fully enclosed running courses that do not cross-city streets or park roads,” said the Bexar Witness.
Already a hub for recreational enthusiasts, the hilly terrain provides ample opportunity for aerobic exercise. The park also hosts numerous 5K, 10K and half marathons.
Pearsall Park is located at 4700 Old Pearsall Road and serves residents from all over San Antonio and is a favorite spot of those who live on the Southside. Another Southside favorite is Mission del Lago, the area’s premier masterplanned community. Mission del Lago has connected with those who grew up on the Southside and are proud to be able to raise their families in this revitalized area of the city. It has also been discovered by those whose employment at the San Antonio Toyota Plant and other vital Southside businesses brings them to the area.
This 800-acre masterplan offers a range of new homes from nationally renowned builders including Lennar and D.R. Horton, amenities including an 18-hole golf course that winds through the community, and a convenient yet serene location,
