The Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy is a nonprofit organization — led by former Mayor Phil Hardberger — with a vision of creating the best place in the heart of the city where people can see and feel the wild. The Conservancy was created to partner with the city and build the political, community and financial support to complete the award-winning master plan for the more than 300-acre former dairy farm. Currently, the Park is only partially accessible; future phases will add new features, such as a land bridge over Wurzbach Parkway to connect the two sides of the park for both wildlife and people. Join the Conservancy to support its mission to realize the community's vision for this natural oasis.

  • I always feel safe at this park whether I am with my husband or on my own with our dog. I love how the dog park is divided into a small dog and a large dog area as well. After visiting the dog park, we always visit the trails for a walk or jog. The best thing about how the trails are laid out is the ease to select a short or long trail depending on the amount of walking and exercise I am in the mood for that day.
  • Best dog park we've been to yet. However, just like any dog park, sometimes people don't pay enough attention to their dogs which causes fights and such. Never seen a major problem but a lot of people don't know how to control their dogs/diffuse a situation. Be careful with your dogs and make sure you know how to recall. Dog parks aren't a place for you to "let your dog run" while you totally ignore them and do other things. The trails are very nice as well and a good option if the dog park is a little too full or crazy for comfort.
  • Well kept trails with very interesting landscape if you're not from Texas. Wheelchair friendly for trails, bathrooms and parking. Nice and we'll kept bathroom facilities. There's an off leash dog park with lots of trees. But leave before the sun sets. To my experience, sketchy people takes over.
  • Amazing safe shady place with lots of trails to walk and enjoy nature. Plenty of water fountains and clean restrooms. Great dog parks for your furry friends and nice play areas for the kids. Plenty of wildlife to see, deer, hawks, so fun!
  • I really enjoy walking with my friends at this park But, the park is not really clean enough to me. It has a dog park that smells all to help when walking by it. People/walkers dont clean up their dog poop on the trails and you find yourself looking down watching your step a lot. And I never saw any type of security patrolling the area until recently which I'm glad to see finally. Otherwise it could be a very nice park.

Where to stay in San Antonio

To be at the heart of San Antonio's buzzing atmosphere and attractions, stay along the city's River Walk. Lined with hotels of all levels, the area is known for excellent dining and nightlife, and is close to all of the city's main sights. While this area tends to be pricier than other neighborhoods, it is the best option for those traveling without a car who want to take full advantage of their vacation time in San Antonio. For a more rustic experience, venture outside of the city limits to stay at one of the old-world guest ranches that dot the beautiful countryside.
