- Located in northwest San Antonio, Eisenhower Park is a great place to go to get away from the noise and hurried pace of city life. The park spans 318 acres and offers approximately five miles of well-marked trails for hikers of all abilities. One of the trails is even paved, and is therefore friendly to those in wheelchairs who still want to experience the great outdoors.
Because this is such a high volume park, and also due to the scorching South Texas summers, the best time to see the wildlife here is either early in the morning or near dusk. Visitors may spot white-tailed deer, armadillos, raccoons and skunks, as well as many unique insects.
Not the biggest or the best, Eisenhower Park is still a good place to visit for the money (after all, it's free). It is very busy at times, and the observation tower does offer a grand view of the city when the conditions are right.
