Owner description: Kiddie Park is the perfect place for children and adults to enjoy a nostalgic day of old-fashioned fun at one of San Antonio's most treasured landmarks! Established in 1925 and renovated in 2009, Kiddie Park is America's oldest children's amusement park! Kiddie Park has preserved its 1920's style by maintaining all of the original rides, while updating the park with modern facilities. Guests can enjoy the parks' old-fashioned ferris wheel and famous hand-carved Herschell Spillman carousel, as well as other classic kids' rides that have made Kiddie Park an iconic San Antonio attraction for over 89 years! We also host birthday parties, private parties, and company events!

Reviewed 26 July 2013

The rides are really old. Hopefully they are safe! Young kids have a blast. You definitely don't have to walk a lot.

“Really cool place and just renovated”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

Right on the edge of Brackenridge park so cool location. This Kiddie park has been there for decades and just went through renovation with a couple who are committed to this historical attraction. Not for kids over 10.

“Wish More Cities Had Parks Like This”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

This is a simple kid's amusement park with about 10 vintage rides. It's $13 for unlimited rides (for kids; adults get in free but can only ride two of the rides) or $11.25 on Wednesday.

If you have a child age 2-8, this is a great place to take them. I hear it gets crowded on weekends, but we went on a Wednesday and there were no lines at all. You can bring your own food and drinks to the park, or buy the usual treats (hot dogs, ice cream, snow cones, cotton candy, etc.) at the park.

This is a small and simple operation. But ti works. Don't expect Fiesta Texas. If you have a kid who doesn't yet meet the height requirements for most rides at Fiesta Texas, Sea World, Schlitterbahn, etc., this is a great alternative.

Your child can ride all the rides within an hour, but will most likely want to ride them more than once. I noticed most families spent 2-3 hours there. My child wanted to stay all day (to ride the rides and interact with the other kids), but we forced her to leave after 5 hours.

All in all, it was a great day!
