I do photography and I love taking family portraits at this beautiful park. There are several spots that are good for backgrounds. It looked clean and well kept to me

Major cleanup is needed. It looks like the park is being used as a dump for the city. Trucks were hailing in and dumping trash on my first and only trip to the park.

This park is not very well known, is in a hidden location off the main traffic. It is not always well kept. Very large area.

crescent bend is a one and mile paved trail with 2 bird blinds and restrooms. The blinds will get you within 30 feet of many birds such as the red napped sap sucker which is not local to this region.

A nice little area to go on a long nature walk. Its just mostly raw nature, though the trail was once paved, so it remains clear enough to walk. You'll love it if you're looking for some exercise and to get out of the neighborhoods...More

Had a nice walk here. I imagine there would be plenty of birds here during spring migration. There are multiple parking areas even though they are not clearly shown on the maps available online.

This park is nothing fancy, but it's a nice retreat away from the suburbs of San Antonio. The park includes a nice 8000 foot long gravel trail that makes a giant loop. The location is excellent for birding, and you'll see a lot of folks...More

Crescent Bend will never be mistaken for McAllister Park, but if all you want to do is take a walk among nature, Crescent Bend does just fine. The trails are decent enough for the occasional walker. Serious hikers won't be impressed though. My wife likes...More

Nice walking trails and if you like to bird watch this is the place! Numerous warblers, cardinals, vireos, buntings and others have been seen there especially during the spring migration.
