Project Spotlight: City of San Antonio Park Improvements

Get ready for modern & exciting enhancements that are sure to bring new life to the beloved parks of San Antonio, TX!

In 2022, the citizens of San Antonio, TX, passed a bond proposal in an effort to enhance several parks throughout the city.San Antonio Park Improvements - Community Collaboration

With the passing of the proposal, WGI was selected to lead several of the park improvement projects, including San Antonio’s Main Plaza, Pickwell Park, and Monterrey Park.

Additionally, WGI was tasked with leading the park improvement projects for District 5’s Alderete Park, Escobar Park, Kennedy Park, and Tejeda Park, with construction budgets ranging from approximately $375,000 to $4,500,000.

WGI’s team of Landscape Architecture experts in Austin, TX, have since served as the primary consultants for the District 5 Park improvement projects.

The team had their hands full working alongside city staff and sub-consultants to analyze the existing conditions of each park, proposing improvement opportunities, communicating with the public as well as project stakeholders, and providing permitted drawings, specifications, and construction administration services.

Proposed District 5 Park Improvements

After conducting extensive research and collaborating with several stakeholders, WGI provided detailed outlines & schematic renderings for each of the District 5 park improvement projects:

Alderete Park: 300 Aurora Avenue, San Antonio, TX: The potential program includes new playground surfacing, shading provisions, and a new trail connection by Greenway Trail.
