Rustic but well maintained. As all who visit or live in South Texas know, summers here are very hot. The trails here are mostly shaded and the scenery is quite pretty. They offer different family oriented activities.

Besides being a World Birding Site, Quinta Mazatlan is a city-owned facility with an interesting history (tours available), extensive grounds, and many bronze wildlife sculptures. Well worth a visit. Inexpensive entrance and tour fee; free coffee!
