While North Central San Antonio continues to grow in both size and population, this 856 park remains firmly anchored as a wooded respite among the concrete sprawl. Best known for its hiking and biking trails, the park attracts hundreds of visitors on the weekends. The trails vary in terms of their difficulty levels, and bicyclists tend to dominate, so hikers beware. Other visitors enjoy the covered picnic areas, soccer fields and softball diamonds. Camping is allowed with reservations and a permit from the Parks and Recreation department. The park is open to public everyday from six in the morning.
I have been there about 8 times and it is a great place to take you dog. I have not seen any problems with dogs or visitors there. Sometimes in the afternoon between 3 to 7PM there may be 60-70 different dogs there. All having a good time. All be safe, C U There.
McAllister is one of the biggest parks I've seen. There are countless trails which my dog and I both love. The dog park is nice with various little dog obstacles, there is no seperation between big and small dogs. In the summer time I always bring extra water bc the fountains dont provide enough for the dogs. There are many soccer and baseball fields. I live close to OP park but prefer going to McAllister
The city is opening the door to liability issues at this dog park. Too many dog owners are not removing their aggressive dogs and non-aggressive dogs are getting attacked and injured. There needs to be supervision at the dog park and in the parking lot where cars are continually broke into.
Too many people have aggressive dogs that they refuse to control for me to feel safe letting my dog loose there. Even when numerous people confront the owners, typically, they just laugh it off and ignore you.
My dog loves having a place to run free and play with other dogs. The park is secure and double gated, though some people do not seem to understand that only 1 gate open at a time guarantees no dogs can escape. So DON'T hold the gate open unless no one else is coming the other direction. And don't open the other gate until the first gate is closed. Occasionally dogs get into fights. And over the past several months many cars have been broken into. LEAVE VALUABLES AT HOME. Carry your purse, wallet, cell phone, etc. on you. My car was hit just the other day. But it will not deter me. I will be watching, educating, organizing, and taking notes and pictures. We can be alert and stop these thefts. Be safe. Be a responsible pet owner. October, 2007
This park is fun and is a great place to play soccer. The atmosphere is very calm, and nice. Almost every time you go there, you see lots of deer. The deer do get very close. There are long trails for walking & bikes, playgrounds, rental party pavillions, a baseball diamond, soccer fields and more! I HIGHLy reccomend this park for weekend fun. The park is very updating, too!
