CONTACT: Michelle Martinez, 210-207-8475


SAN ANTONIO (Dec. 20, 2018) - The San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department is seeking your feedback on the Draft 2019-2029 SA Parks System Plan.  The SA Parks System Plan will guide future planning 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.


This draft is a reflection of the initial input received from our San Antonio residents, stakeholders, and City staff. From October 2017 through April 2018 a bilingual on-line and paper survey was made available to the public to solicit feedback. Park staff attended various city organized public events, conducted seven community workshops and five free events to promote the System Plan and solicit survey participation. 


“We encourage residents to review the plan and to send us their ideas, insights and suggestions,” said Xavier Urrutia, Parks and Recreation Director. “Resident input is essential to a successful parks system and to ensure the SA Parks System Plan reflects the diverse needs of our community.”


The draft plan is available at for public input. In January 2019, the Parks and Recreation Department will host meeting opportunities for the public to provide further feedback on the draft plan. Resident feedback will be incorporated into the final plan and taken to City Council for approval in spring 2019.
