The City of San Antonio’ Center City Development Office engaged Project for Public Spaces Inc. (PPS) to assist the City, the community and area stakeholders to create a vision and concept plan for Travis Park. A concept plan was then developed based on feedback from the public through meetings and surveys.
The revitalization of Travis Park was sparked by a placemaking grant from Southwest Airlines to the City of San Antonio to support the city’s placemaking efforts and engage the local community through new physical amenities and programming. In addition to the placemaking grant, the City has also undertaken a number of maintenance and improvement projects to enhance the experience at Travis Park, one of the oldest municipal parks in the country. The park has been rebranded and now features a calendar of regular programming and special events, such as movies and fitness in the park to attract locals, workers, and visitors alike.
Travis Park is strategically located adjacent to the St. Anthony Hotel and near the new Tobin Performing Arts Center, and has the opportunity to be a great urban destination that is historic, dynamic, and contemporary at the same time. In order to continue the investment and community support of the historic park, the San Antonio Parks Foundation is assisting to identify additional partnership and funding opportunities to further support the overall concept plan developed by PPS.
We invite the public to visit and enjoy all the exciting programming and special events taking place at the new Travis Park!
