Gardens & Natural Areas


Our Gardens and the Natural Areas offer fresh air, sunshine and nature in abundance. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy numerous trails in Crownridge Canyon, Eisenhower, Friedrich Wilderness, Phil Hardberger, Medina River, Panther Springs and Walker Ranch Historic Landmark Parks. Enjoy physical exercise while observing wildlife and learning more about South Texas native species.
