Emmitt Park was officially dedicated to the City of San Antonio on November 11, 2020. Since then we have watched God’s provision and favor pour out into the lives of so many. Emmitt Park has been the site for ministry events, worship services, bible studies, family gatherings, playdates and so much more! It is our hope that it would bring many years of enjoyment, recreation, and fellowship to all who visit.
At Community Bible Church, We Champion Every Person to be the Good News of Jesus in Every Place, and it is our heart’s desire for Emmitt Park to be one of those places your family and friends come to play and connect.
At Emmitt Park, you will find a robust playground with a splash pad, general picnic areas, reservable picnic areas, and three pickleball courts for your enjoyment. In order to make the most of your visit, we would encourage you to get familiar with our park policies by reading through our FAQs; most questions can be answered here.

Pickleball is a sport in which two, three, or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a Wiffle ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis, with a few modifications. Must serve underhand from behind the baseline. Only the serving team can score points.
