San Antonio Residents Encouraged to Speak Up on the Draft SA Parks System Plan

CONTACT: Michelle Martinez, 210-207-8475


SAN ANTONIO (Jan. 23, 2019) - The San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department is seeking community input on the Draft 2019-2029 SA Parks System Plan. The plan will guide future decisions on the expansion, capital improvements and programming of the more than 250 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.


Initial input for the plan was gathered from residents, stakeholders, and City staff from Oct. 2017 through April 2018. Four primary goals to guide the parks system over the next ten years were identified from the feedback:

  1. San Antonio has a RESPONSIVE park system.
  2. The Park System is RESTORATIVE to the community’s health.
  3. San Antonio is more RESILIENT because of parks and recreation.
  4. The City is RESOURCEFUL in creating, maintaining and changing the parks and recreation system.


Residents can learn more about the recommended strategies for each of the primary goals and submit their feedback at one of the upcoming meetings or online:

  • Thursday, Jan. 24 – Join us for the SA Parks System Plan Public Meeting at the Salvation Army (Peacock Center) at 2810 W. Ashby Place from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, Jan. 31 – Dial in at 7 p.m. for a Tele-town Hall meeting to hear more about the plan and provide your feedback. Check or the Parks and Recreation Facebook and Twitter (@SAParksandRec) pages for more details.
  • Now thru Friday, Feb. 8- Visit to view the draft plan and provide your comments online.


Resident feedback will be incorporated into the final plan and taken to City Council for approval in Spring 2019.
