Medina River Nature Area

Medina River Nature Area

A 364-acre Natural Areas park on the site of the old proposed Applewhite Reservoir property opened in April 2005, located at 15890 Highway 16 South. This natural area gives citizens access to a beautiful 364-acre property that has been enhanced with 2.5 miles of trails with interpretive features representing El Camino Real wagon trail. The northside of the park includes a large covered pavilion, restrooms, trailhead, parking and a staff building. The park, which will eventually link greenbelts and trails over a 10-mile area known as City South, also features a group camping area available by reservation. This area includes parking, camping, restrooms, water service and a small covered pavilion for camping activities.
