1. Phil Hardberger Park
13203 Blanco Rd. & 8400 NW Military Hwy.
One of the Alamo City's biggest and newest parks, Phil Hardberger Park — named after the former mayor who fought to get it off the ground — gets the double distinction of being voted Best City Park and Best Dog Park (again). And it's really no wonder our readers are so enamored with this big (311 acres) and beautiful urban oasis which boasts not one but two dog parks, multiple playgrounds, nature trails and a historical homestead and dairy barn. On the natural/ecological side of things, Hardberger Park features rare vegetation, a truly singular land bridge, an impressive Urban Ecology Center and an outdoor classroom. So whether you're looking for a place to give your closest canine friends some social time, a place to ruminate on the precious vivacity of the natural world or a place to tucker out the tots — this gem of a city park has got you covered.
