Children’s Park in San Marcos is a blast for kids with excess energy to burn (i.e. all of them). Home to an elaborate wooden playground, the 7-acre park is perfect for wearing young explorers out. Plus, it has the added incentive of being minutes from the Tanger and Premium Outlets!
The City of Austin has temporarily banned public gatherings. Please stay home. The Free Fun in Austin calendar is only for live digital events at this time.
With swings, tires, slides, sand, and nooks and crannies aplenty, imaginative play – and lots of running – could last for hours. Take a picnic to the park and plan to stay awhile.
If you visit on a weekend, parking can be tricky, as the lot by the playground is on the small side. Have a stroller handy, in case you need to park further away. There are bathrooms near the playground, but bring your own hand sanitizer.
