Phase 3 (Current)
It’s important to remember that indicators for public access to facilities and park amenities in each phase include : a stable decrease of new COVID-19 cases; appropriate support for medically at-risk populations; and, the ability to effectively monitor, test, trace, and isolate new cases. Updates on the re-opening of park amenities will be posted at saparksandrec.com and social media channels @saparksandrec.
About the Re-opening Plan
On April 28, the COVID-19 Health Transition Team appointed by Mayor Ron Nirenberg and County Judge Nelson Wolff released a multi-phase plan for reopening our community as safely as possible. The plan offers guidance based on public health evidence, data, and expertise to re-open San Antonio and Bexar County.
