This November (2018) my wife ran in the San Antonio Rock N Roll Half Marathon. The race for both the half and full marathon ended right at HemisFair Park. My kids and I posted up in the park while we waited for my wife to round the final corner before running up to the fence for a round of high fives.
If you have never been to HemisFair Park in down town San Antonio it is definitely something should check out. It has plenty to keeps the kids busy especially on a nice day outside. Including, jungle gym type set ups, neat swings, play houses, open yard, chicken coop, giant checker boards and much more...not to mention right in the heart of down town San Antonio.
There are also restaurants and coffee shops right by. The Tower or Americas, River Walk and Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and more popular spots are all just a short walk away or scooter ride away now a days.
Check out some of the photos from our late morning in HemisFair Park where you can see some of the set up. Also not pictured since it was out of season is the splash pad area they have which we have been to before in the summer and kids also loved that.
After the race the Rock N Roll event had a great set up over at La Vallita square with band, booths, drinks etc where every one was having a great time after the race socializing. La Villita is also just a quick walk across the street from HemisFair Park where you can find lots of authentic Shops, Dining and Art true to San Antonio culture. That is the picture with the Tower of Americas in the background.
