When you visit 20 parks in San Antonio in one year, people start asking questions. “Where did you go?” “Which park was your favorite?” “How did you get started?” “Does San Antonio even have 20 parks?” (Yes! San Antonio has hundreds of parks and greenways!)
When the San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department learned about the SA2020 Resolutions challenge my family and I tackled in 2014 to go to 20 parks, they had lots of questions too. We met up in McAllister Park recently to chat about our year-long park adventure. Our conversation became part of the City’s bimonthly, locally-produced TV show, Park Bench, which features news, information, and feature stories about San Antonio parks. Here’s the segment featuring San Antonio Mom Blogs:
The City of San Antonio’s Parks and Recreation Department would love for you to become regular Park Bench viewers to learn more about all of the exciting programs, parks and facilities offered in the Alamo City.
Park Bench airs on TVSA (Time Warner Cable digital channel 21/99, Grande channel 20, and Uverse channel 99) on Mondays at 9:00 a.m. and on Fridays at 9:30 p.m. To watch archived editions of Park Bench and additional shows that discuss how your municipal government is working for you visit, this page for previous Park Bench episodes.
The folks at the Parks and Recreation Department work hard to keep San Antonio parks clean and safe and to bring programs, including free or low-cost holiday and summer camps for kids, to the citizens of San Antonio. Visit the Parks and Recreation Department’s website for details and follow them on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook where they’re always actively engaging with the community of San Antonio.
