Landa Park has both a man-made Olympic pool and a gorgeous swimming hole. Both are spring-fed. There is a large bathhouse, built in 1937 by the Works Progress Administration, with showers, dressing rooms and full amenities. The Olympic pool is surrounded by concrete and grass. Shade is provided by giant umbrellas over picnic tables. There are dedicated lap lanes and a large shallow area. A separate wading pool is quite large and has a fantasy mushroom fountain and other fun things for kids to play with. The swimming hole is L-shaped and has grassy banks on either side which are well-shaded. There are rope swings, wooden platforms in the middle for sunning and diving, a water volleyball court, and a slide that plunges you into the cold water. Lifeguards are on duty at all three pools.
In addition, the Comal River has been dammed in several areas throughout the park, creating small wading pools where you can splash with the geese. Landa Park’s amenities have been extremely well-incorporated into the natural landscape. The grounds are beautiful and seem to go on forever.
Landa Park also has an 18-hole golf course and miniature golf course. A miniature train runs around the 200-acre park. Twenty-five-acre Landa Lake is serene, and glass-bottom boats, paddleboats and rowboats can be rented and taken out on the water. There are hiking and nature trails, tennis courts, a recreation center, picnic areas, playscapes and sand volleyball. Landa Park has everything!
