Goliad State Park & Historic Site

September 18, 2013 - Site improvements at Mission Espiritu Santo are in progress. The mission museum will be closed October 29, 2013 through December 2014. The mission compound grounds, chapel, and workshop will remain open to the public during this time. Please contact the park in advance of your arrival to insure the availability of your specific interest.


A nature trail heads from the mission buildings and picnic grounds and traverses typical south Texas brushland or chaparral. The brushland contrasts sharply with the luxuriant gallery woodlands of the San Antonio River floodplain. Birdlife along the trail is especially varied, due to proximity of diverse habitats and to the mild regional climate. There is a designated wildlife viewing area.
