    Brackenridge Park is about 2 miles north of downtown. The park includes a miniature railway which travels around for about 2 1/2 miles, a carousel and skyride and the Japanese Tea Gardens. The latter caused some confusion as it is also called the Chinese Tea Gardens and the Japanese Sunken Gardens. I believe it came about when Japan bombed Pearl Harbour and the garden owners were asked to change the name.

    It was actually a disappointment having seen some wonderful gardens elsewhere. There was no admission so I guess no funding for upkeep. The gardens are open from 8.00am until dark but are closed from the end of October through to January 1st. Admission is free.

    San Antonio's answer to the Central Park :). It's a lovely place to spend the afternoon walking or even playing golf! The neighborhood is not as good as it used to, but it's still a lovely place. Please drive slowly in the park!
