SAN ANTONIO (April 1, 2019) – In late 2018 the San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department acquired 3.3 acres of property in Council District 7 for the future development of property located at 224 West Quill Drive.
The future neighborhood park is within walking distance from the adjacent Woodlawn Hills neighborhood. The new park will provide an opportunity for residents to recreate, connect with the outdoors and improve their overall quality of life.
“I advocated for this property in District 7 because it’s vital for all residents to have access to green space,” Councilwoman Sandoval said. “I look forward to seeing children run, residents walk on trails and neighbors being able to connect with each other.”
“The land acquisition is consistent with the City’s SA Tomorrow Comprehensive Plan,” said Xavier Urrutia, director of parks and recreation. “As our park system grows our department will ensure the distribution is equitable so that all residents have opportunities to recreate.”
Residents should contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 210-207-2873 or visit SAParksandRec.com to inquire about future community input meetings or for more information.
