Since 1956, the San Antonio Zoo Eagle, formerly known as the Brackenridge Eagle, has chugged along the tracks skirting the banks of the San Antonio River as it makes its way through one of San Antonio's most popular parks. Today, various stops include the Witte Museum, Kiddie Park, and the Japanese Tea Gardens, also known as the Sunken Gardens. All stops are weather permitted and may change without notice.
Generations of Brackenridge Park visitors have ridden the rails past the San Antonio Zoo. It has braved several derailments, a couple of collisions, and even a modern-day train robbery during the summer of 1970.
Enjoy lunch at the train depot café located next to the train depot gift shop.
