I am looking for a park with large grass hills to do hill sprints. The steeper the hills the better. I am trying to help a friend get in shape and we would prefer grass hills versus running alongside a street. Preferably located in North San Antonio

I don't know how "grassy" the trails are, but Eisenhower park has hilly trails which are quite long. It's on NW Military north of 1604. If you get to the Camp Bullis entrance, you've gone too far.

McAllister might have what you are looking for. That's off of Wetmore and Starcrest. There's also the Leon Creek Greenway that has trails that are a bit hilly. Not very but not flat. That's by Bandera and Mainland or Babcock and Springtime depending on which entrance you start at.

Go to the back country at Government Canyon and run some of the hills there, that'll give you a serious workout!

Crownridge has some good hills as well, but don't expect "grassy" anywhere in this area especially considering the drought conditions we're under.

The city has a great web site for its parks: City of San Antonio | Official Web Site - Parks & Recreation Department (http://www.ci.sat.tx.us/parksandrec/ - broken link)

Cheers! M2
