San Antonio, Texas: Tom Slick's Nessie

Tom Slick was the rich son of a Texas oil baron. He traveled the world looking for aliens and monsters. The park named for him features a Nessie monster statue in its quarry pond that comes and goes as the water level rises and falls.

Tom Slick's Nessie

Easy walk on paved path. Very neat park, with dog park.

Tom Slick's Nessie

Sadly, the quarry pond has been hit with the western drought, and the pond is now mostly rocky shores. But the good news is that Nessie can be seen fully in all its glory.
