Family pets are welcome on the grounds of the four missions, as long as they are on a leash or being carried. They will not be allowed into park buildings or the churches.
Please police your animals and deposit waste in a trashcan.
To protect the park's wildlife, please do not bring leashed pets on the Yanaguana Nature trail at Mission San Juan.
WARNING: Do not leave animals unattended in your vehicle. They can die within 20 minutes in South Texas, where temperatures can reach 80 degrees by 9:00 a.m.

that the four churches within San Antonio Missions National Historical Park are active Catholic parish churches? While they have not been in continuous operation since established in the early 1700s, many parishioners today are direct descendants of the mission Indians who built the churches.
