San Antonio parks get bond-funded upgrades

Bond money funds a variety of park projects across the city, and there's an easy way to find out what progress they're making on open spaces near you.

Tuesday, city officials and City Councilor Ana Sandoval hosted a meeting to discuss plans for Woodlawn Lake Park. It's one of many parks getting upgrades using bond money. 

The Trevino family has been visiting Woodlawn Lake Park for years.

"It's been beautiful since I was a little girl and it continues to be a beautiful park to bring your grandkids," April Trevino said.

While they're happy with how it looks now, they're glad the city is prioritizing keeping up and upgrading public spaces.

Recently, public meetings have been held for other parks as well. Councilwoman Sandoval's office says meetings for Nani Falcone Park yielded suggestions of security lighting, more shade and better parking. Councilman Roberto Trevino's office said another public meeting brought people together to discuss plans for San Pedro Springs Park. There, design development is underway, with requests for bids coming in two to three months.
