Castroville Regional Park & Cross Hill
816 Alsace St. (830) 931-0033 • Website: Castroville Regional Park
Enjoy outdoor activities along the Medina River such as camping, swimming, hiking, tennis courts, basketball, sand volleyball and covered picnic areas. Tour the “Garden of Roots,” a flower garden geographically formed in the shape of Alsace, France. The park also features 40 complete pull-thru RV sites.
CROSS HILL: It is an old European custom for a village to proclaim its faith by erecting a cross in a prominent place, and the Alsatians brought the tradition with them when they came to the Medina Valley. Since then it has been called Cross Hill and was used by the Catholics in earlier times for pilgrimages and prayer petitions, such as Rogation Days. Today you can hike a path from Regional Park up to Cross Hill for a beautiful panoramic view of Castroville & surrounding area.
