October 2, 2017
WHO: Elementary school students and teachers from Greater San Antonio schools.
WHAT: First of four Morgan’s Wonderland educational field trips in which students learn lessons in science, mathematics and other subjects in various areas of the unique theme park. Each educational field trip session attracts approximately 300 students to the park that – in essence – becomes an outdoor “classroom.”
WHEN: 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017.
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 offer learning opportunities outside the classroom in a colorful outdoor setting.
ETC.: Created in conjunction with the Region 20 Education Service Center, each field-trip activity for students is directly related to TEKS-based lesson plans. Region 20 has updated the curriculum, and now 11 learning stations in areas such as math and science are situated throughout the park.
Other fall educational field trips have been scheduled for Oct. 10, 16 and 17.
Morgan’s Wonderland, which is completely wheelchair-accessible, was proclaimed 2017 “Park of the Year” in the Golden Ticket Awards sponsored by Amusement Today, an international publication focusing on the amusement industry. The non-profit theme park offers more than 25 attractions including rides, playscapes, gardens, an 8-acre catch-and-release fishing lake, 575-seat amphitheater, picnic area and rest areas.

Morgan’s Wonderland and other endeavors to help those with special needs such as The Academy at Morgan’s Wonderland and new Morgan’s Inspiration Island splash park were created through the vision and leadership of The Gordon Hartman Family Foundation.
