Hot Wells of Bexar County is the county’s newest park located in Precinct 1 at 5503 S. Presa St., along the Mission Reach of the San Antonio River.
In 2015, Bexar County acquired the ruins and surrounding land for preservation and public use. Since then, Bexar County has transformed the Hot Wells ruins into a world-class, model for urban restoration and community engagement – now perfectly complementing the Mission Reach Trails and Texas’ only UNESCO World Heritage Site, the San Antonio Missions.
Hot Wells has a rich history, beginning in the late 19th and 20th centuries, the Hot Wells site was a place where one could enjoy the therapeutic powers of the hot sulfuric waters that flowed from the well at the many resorts that occupied the land, during that time period.
Though Hot Wells has gone through many changes over the years, including the hotel now being gone and the well once capped, visitors can now stroll through the historic grounds and experience the park - available to the public for the first time starting on April 30, 2019.
