Pleasanton is known as being the Birthplace of the Cowboy and its motto is "The City of Live Oaks and Friendly Folks." It is located approximately 30 miles south of San Antonio.
Outside of City Hall, Pleasanton honors cowboy heritage with the Mr. Cowboy statue given to the city by Ben and Mona Parker. Directly across the street is the famous giant oak tree that the city keeps decorated with lights.
Pleasanton is host to many events and activities throughout the year including Pleasanton Homecoming, Turn N Burn, and Merry on Main.
