The area contains two of the most beautifully unique parks in the city, both of which offer free admission to the general public.
San Pedro Park abounds with gigantic trees that are uncharacteristic of South Texas. Visitors can enjoy a book or quiet picnic under the much sought-after shade. In the summer months, the park's most alluring amenity comes to life. The natural spring provides a free, public swimming hole. You will also find a playground for the little ones to enjoy and can feel comfortable bringing pets
Landa Gardens also serves as an attractive spot for locals to enjoy the outdoors. The grounds include an elegant mansion remodeled into a public library. Under the canopy of trees, children can enjoy the thoughtfully constructed playground area. The Monte Vista
Historical Association uses the public park for events such as their annual July 4th parade or giant Easter egg hunt.
