Joshua Spring Park & Preserve is located in Comfort, Texas, with over 400 acres of park to explore. From a stocked fishing pond to a playground and miles of trails, this park offers outdoor fun for the whole family. There is even a dog park for your furry family members to run around in.
We love this park for the scenic picnic spots on the water and the playground with bathrooms conveniently located right next to it. We love the hiking/walking trails and spotting nature as we go. We have yet to explore the entire park and have been there on several occasions.
The playground has two separate spots for younger tots and older children to climb and play. The smaller playground is partially shaded with a few stairs, a tunnel and some slides. The larger playground has many different climbing obstacles and slides to choose from. It can get hot in the afternoon and on sunny days, so be sure to pack some water and sunscreen!
If you are looking for some outdoor physical activity, this park is a great choice. There is a variety of trails to choose from with various terrains and elevations.
For a more steady walk or ADA trails, you can choose the paved roads that lead you to several bird observation blinds. If you cross the pond you can walk on different dirt paths. Heading to the right will bring you to the river and up the mountainside to connect with the ring mountain road. You can stay on the road up to the top of the mountain for some beautiful views or continue across on the path. If you stay straight you can walk the mowed path around the meadow and spot a variety of butterflied and wildflowers.
We have yet to fish in the pond but always see fishermen on our visits to the park. The catch-and-release pond is stocked with catfish, large mouth bass, and sunfish as well as others. There are docks you can cast from as well as take your kayak on the pond, but no motors are allowed.
Joshua Springs is about a 15-minute drive from downtown Boerne and downtown Comfort and worth every minute! You can bring your dogs to the small and large dog parks or bring a leash and take them along for a hike with you.
We look forward to seeing you on the trails!
