(SA) Downtown Loops Newest Park: Chris Park

Chris Park. It's a one acre park in the SoFlo District.

http://www.chrispark.org

I'm not sure how new it is but it's at least a year old. Though I had never heard about it.

Parks are always a good thing. Glad to hear there's a new one in SA.

Wow. That place looks beautiful. I LOVE the landscaping and plants. San Antonio has an awesome climate. Kind of between being sub-tropical since it's warm, and almost desert like since you can have just about any variety of southwestern vegetation. I'm a plant nut, so that place looks cool. I may have to check it out.

I was looking up on their website trying to find out where it is. They didn't list an address so I had to use GoogleEarth to find it. I may be in San Antonio next month for a day, I doubt it'll be enough time to go over there. I'll definitely have to check it out in July.

This is a park that the late Linda Pace built to honor/remember her son Chris.
