Connecting a Park Separated by a Highway
Josh Baugh reports from San Antonio: "By early 2020, pedestrians, bicyclists and animals will be able to use a land bridge to access both sides of Hardberger Park, the massive green space divided by Wurzbach Parkway."
$13 million funding for the project will come from an $850 million bond program approved by voters in May 2017. "The Hardberger Park Conservancy amassed an additional $10 million in private funds and contributions from Bexar County and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to fulfill its portion of the funding obligation," adds Baugh.
Baugh provides more details about the politics of park funding in San Antonio as well as the debate about the land bridge.
