Phil Hardberger Park is a 311-acre natural area park. Wurzbach Parkway bisects the middle of the park, separating it into a west side, with access off NW Military Hwy, and an east side, accessed by Blanco Road. The park was developed on the site of a former dairy farm. The original 19th-century farmhouse still stands on the park’s east side. Amenities include trails, playscapes, dog parks, picnic facilities, basketball courts, an outdoor classroom, an urban ecology center and the Salado Creek overlook. Each side of Phil Hardberger features a dog park with agility equipment and areas designed for both small and large dogs. Hardberger Park is classified as a natural area, and recreational usage is limited to help preserve the environment. Visitors should stay on the designated trails, in order to lessen their impact on wildlife and plants. Alcohol, loud music, off-road motorized vehicles, and glass containers are not permitted.
