Comanche Lookout Park
15551 Nacogdoches Rd.
Located on the Northeast side of SA at Semmes Library, this park is great to get an intense thigh workout. By walking (or running) up the steep rocky incline to lookout tower, you and your pup will be doing the equivalent of at least 100 high-intensity squats. However, the view from the top is totally worth the work.
