Due to a bond program that was approved in 2007, the City of San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department has made substantial improvements over the last few years in their park system. The residents, my family included, have reaped many benefits from the enhancements. There are a wide variety of options available. My son loves the variety of playgrounds, I enjoy the different trail types and locations, and there are several dog parks for all the dog lovers.
Knowing how much I use & enjoy getting out and visiting the city parks, I am especially excited that K&W’s San Antonio office was recently selected to perform design services on park improvements for two parks. In 2012, the citizens approved another bond, which included $87.15 million for park improvements on 42 parks. K&W was selected to work on New Territories & Oscar Perez Parks. These parks are located on the northwest side of San Antonio. They are each going to get $350,000 worth of trail improvements, which K&W will have the benefit of designing.
Working at K&W, we do many open spaces and parks, but most are for private developers. We’re excited about the opportunity to serve in the public sector. The design work hasn’t started yet, but I will definitely be bringing my family to enjoy these parks when they’re complete and will be excited to post another blog entry showing the finished improvements.
Kudela & Weinheimer’s San Antonio office was established in 2006. The office has five employees and works on a diverse array of projects. Some notable San Antonio projects include The Broadway Condominiums and 1221 Broadway Lofts at River North.
