WHERE: Morgan’s Wonderland, 5223 David Edwards Drive (at the intersection of Wurzbach Parkway and Thousand Oaks Drive a half-mile west of IH 35 in Northeast San Antonio).

WHY: To enable Wish children to enjoy a day of fun, create lasting memories with family members and provide a respite from the day-to-day regimen of medical treatment.

ETC.: Morgan’s Wonderland, which is completely wheelchair-accessible, features more than 25 attractions including rides, playgrounds and gardens.  TripAdvisor respondents rank it among the top 25 theme parks in the U.S., the only non-profit in the group.  New this year is ultra-accessible, tropically-themed Morgan’s Inspiration Island splash park.  For more information, visit
