Summertime is here! What better place to go than a city or county park! San Antonio is home to over 150 parks, each one being an excellent venue for play time with the kids. Spending a day at the park is a great way to spend time as a family. Best of all, everyone can visit the parks FREE OF CHARGE (although there may be usage fees for the gyms/pavilions).
There are 519 Full sites and 6 partial sites. The maximum size of your RV is 45′ long. They have 30 amps electricity, water at the sites as well as sewer. Quiet time is between 11 pm and 8am. Contact them for rental accommodations.
This park has a great activites schedule. I line danced, worked jigsaw puzzles and played cards with several of the other RVers. The line dancing was very professionally taught, was easy to follow and so much fun! If you’ve never tried line dancing, this is the place to try it. The instructor is very patient and excellent at what she does. The little restaurant in the adult lodge has very large portions and the food is wonderful.
For players who want something in between leisurely play and intense leagues, Chicago has a way for people to contact other players interested in beach tennis and form friendly teams. Sportsvite is a website dedicated to helping people connect through sports. The site provides visitors with the option to create and organize their own teams, and even has management tools to help form schedules and rosters. Anyone can sign-up and contact other people who enjoy playing beach tennis.
Goofy’s Sports Deck will be located high atop deck 13, with nine holes of miniature golf featuring lessons by Goofy and his son Max. There’s plenty of Disney theming, like a hole that required “Handling a dog leg” by avoiding a fire hydrant and using Pluto’s dog bone to mke it tt hole. The sports deck will also have simulators with various games like tennis, soccer and basketball. The full basketball court can become a mini soccer field or volleyball positions.
For anyone lucky enough to have a water feature in her or his outdoor living area, the sound of gently flowing water is a true pleasure. Perhaps nothing brings peace of mind like water; whether it’s a stream, a pond, a pool or a fountain, it’s a treat for all the senses.
We arrived at Summer Fun Water Park just a few minutes after it opened. The day was fairly cloudy, with a 40% chance of rain. So it’s likely that some people stayed away on the day of my visit because of the weather. However, we didn’t have to wait at all to get in. Because we traveled in a group, one person in our group was assigned to get our wrist bands. Often when we’ve gone to smaller water parks like Rockin’ River or Veterans Memorial Pool, we’ve had to wait in lines to get in, so this was a nice change of pace. We also easily found a group of tables together in a shaded area overlooking the main swimming pool.
There are nice public restrooms located throughout the park that is clean and well taken care of. One thing to note is that the park employees lock some gates inside the park at dusk so be sure to leave the park before darkness.
