The jewel of New Braunfels, this beautiful park is a favorite spot for picnics, boating or tubing on the Comal River, golf, and other outdoor recreation. It's very much like Brackenridge Park in San Antonio.
I guess my standards for parks are very high. I would rate this one a 3/10. Nice trees, the river runs through it (but you can't swim), too many parking lots and an ok small trail. My dog loves it though! I feel this park is too structured. There are paddle boats, a pool, a little train and many covered picnic areas.
The Landa Park has 51 acres, with trails (including the Panther Canyon Nature Trail), miniature train, paddle boats on the Landa Lake, miniature golf, picnic tables and more.
I took an early morning stroll in the Landa Park; it was still quite chilly (in December!), people were jogging or walking their dogs. The ducks in the lake were also noisily starting their day.
Along the paths I enjoyed the over 50 different tree species belonging to the William and Dolores Schumann Arboretum. The Chinese pistache was blazing red. There was mist over the lake. It was a nice start for my day.
