This is a regular route when I jog or walk. Attractive surroundings with winding sidewalk along Cibolo Creek flanked by ducks. Very nice to have a bathroom there, too. There are many pretty spots for a picnic.

It was 105F+ and the ducks swarmed me. I had some food to eat on one of their hot concrete picnic table and ducks jumped up on the table and started picking at my food. I couldn’t get them away and when I tried to...More

My young son and I enjoyed our walk, seeing all the ducks, geese and turtles, but were dismayed that people were feeding them bread. Bread is very bad for the wildlife and the water. There are signs posted all along the river saying not to...More

Nice shady walk with responsive turtles, ducks and geese, clean public restrooms, fishing platform, historical info boards, sculptures, and seating. This is part of a multi mile walk from Kendall Inn to Cibolo Nature Center.

We've taken many pictures along this river as our four boys have grown up in this area from young toddlers to adults.

This is a very popular park. Sidewalk and fishing areas. Please watch out for ducks and people crossing the very busy River Road. River Road is also US Highway 46.
