SA Parks System Plan

The SA Parks System Plan is the plan that guides future planning decisions on the expansion, capital improvements, and programming of the more than 240 City-owned parks and recreational facilities, 15,000 plus acres of green space, and over 181 miles of trails. The plan is updated every 10 years with the last plan being adopted in 2006. The current effort to update the plan will leverage the work of and coordinate closely with the SA Tomorrow plan initiative, include an Urban Forestry Strategic Plan, and recommend future funding goals and objectives.

The Parks and Recreation Department is now in the process of updating our current System Plan. The entire update process will take approximately 18 months. The Bender Wells Clark Design Team (BWCD Team) has been hired by the City of San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department to assist in the development of the plan.
