Located on the northwest side of San Antonio, off of Bandera Road, O.P. Schnabel Park lies on just 200 acres, but it has just as much to offer as some of San Antonio’s larger parks (maybe even more with a YMCA on site!). On the Sunday we visited, it was full of families, dogs, runners, and bike riders, all enjoying the lovely pre-spring weather.

The Braundera YMCA at the park offers a pool with slides, a splash pad, and a rock wall.  O.P. Schnabel Park also has a fun, updated playground; two pavilions for rent (one with a kitchen); lots of shade and places to sit; easy access to Leon Springs Greenway; more than 50 picnic tables; basketball courts; and fields for baseball, soccer, and football.
