Blossom Park – Community Park near Shady Oaks

Blossom Park is a community park next to Bradley Middle School in Northern San Antonio. The park is at least three acres in size and is a very family friendly and dog friendly area. From Heimer, go beyond Brook Hollow and enter the park after passing the school.

The parking lot is surprisingly small but there is also street parking available. Blossom Park is not gated and is accessible 24 hours a day. 6pm is approximately the busiest time of day during the week. However, it’s next to a middle school and the street may be backed up during drop off and pick up times.

Things To Do

The restrooms at Blossom Park are the portable kind but that’s better than nothing in my opinion. Just beyond the parking lot there is a nice outdoor basketball court, a kids playground and a softball field beyond that. The play area around the playground is similar to a trampoline. If I were a kid I’d jump around in the playground for hours!

A library box for free reading materials.

Next to the playground there is a small library box where you can either take a book, or leave a book for free. Most parks do not have such a fantastic feature. This is the closest park to a school that we have entered, but not the closest to a library even though the Brook Hollow branch is right down the street. If you do pick up a book to read there are several places to sit and read throughout the park.

Beyond the softball field there are several other open fields. These would be great for playing games or playing fetch. During the middle part of the day the playground will not receive any shade so the little ones will undoubtedly need to wear sunscreen. If you forget to bring water there is a fountain near the parking lot and a bike rack as well if you would rather ride a bike.

There is access to a more wooded area out beyond the open fields but we did not survey those areas this time. Next time we visit Blossom Park in San Antonio we will go hiking in the woods. We are always looking for new dog friendly things to do in San Antonio.
