It appears an iconic San Antonio park will continue on after representatives from the San Antonio Zoo say they will give the park a new home.

Representatives with Kiddie Park and San Antonio Zoo announced they have teamed up to save Kiddie Park.

The iconic attraction established in 1925 is moving from its original location to its new home at San Antonio Zoo this summer.

Rad Weaver, the co-owner of Kiddie Park, says, “It made great sense to hand off Kiddie Park to San Antonio Zoo, My family, my partners, and our team took great pride in restoring Kiddie Park in 2009 and wanted to ensure that it was here many more years for the families of San Antonio to enjoy.”

“Our goal for Kiddie Park is to honor and maintain its look and feel while offering the same experience generations of visitors have come to know and love. Both Kiddie Park and San Antonio Zoo have rich histories, and are deeply woven into the fabric of our community and in our memories,” said Tim Morrow, CEO San Antonio Zoo.

“Now when visitors purchase a ticket to ride these iconic rides they are not only having fun, they are supporting our zoo’s mission,” said Morrow.
