Since Rio Bonito is located right on the San Gabriel River, it’s tempting to stay on property and enjoy the gorgeous views. However, there are miles of river to explore, as well as one of the most beautiful parks in Texas.

San Gabriel Park encompasses 180 acres of park land shaded by 200-year-old oak trees. The park often hosts events such as concerts and festivals, and there are fields for playing soccer, football, lacrosse, and baseball.

The park is the perfect place for a family picnic and an afternoon of outdoor fun. Wander along the hike and bike trail. Play some touch football or Frisbee with the kids. You can swim, fish, or canoe on the water if you like. There’s even a 9-hole disc golf course at the north end of the park. You’re sure to enjoy a relaxing day under the trees with your family and friends.

Construction is currently occurring in some parts of the park, so you’ll want to check the website before you head out. To learn more about San Gabriel park, visit the website here.
