The City of San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department is pleased to present to you the 2019-2029 SA Parks System Plan.  This system plan will guide future planning decisions about expansion, capital improvements and programming of the more than 250 City-owned parks and recreational facilities, 16,000 plus acres of green space and over 200 miles of trails.  The plan also includes an assessment of the Department’s Urban Forestry Program and aligns with the SA Tomorrow long-range plan initiative.  Public input remains clear – thoughtful and deliberate planning and promotion of parks, recreation facilities and programs is needed to keep pace with the growth, changing demographics, aging infrastructure and social needs challenging San Antonio as our population grows.  Though the City of San Antonio will assume a leadership role in this effort, comprehensive planning can only be accomplished through close coordination with our residents as well as private companies, nonprofit organizations and other public agencies.  We look forward to working together with everyone in order to achieve the goals identified in the SA Parks System Plan over the next ten years and beyond to transform San Antonio parks into a Responsive, Restorative, Resilient, and Resourceful parks system.
