Phil Hardberger Playground and Dog Park Park | San Antonio, TX

San Antonio has a NEW park complete with 2 dog parks (large dogs and small dogs nicely separated), a beautiful playground, and several short walking trails shaded by the harsh rays of San Antonio sun! Last Thursday I was invited to preview a park envisioned by the former Mayor Phil Hardberger, who proposed using the property to establish a world-class park!

  1. After examine a number of of the weblog posts in your web site now, and I truly like your means of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark website listing and will likely be checking again soon. Pls take a look at my website as properly and let me know what you think.

  2. What i do not understood is actually how you’re not actually much more neatly-preferred than you might be now. You are so intelligent. You recognize therefore considerably with regards to this matter, made me individually imagine it from so many various angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be interested until it’s one thing to do with Woman gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. All the time care for it up!

  3. I have a small background in magazine journalism but my new job requires no writing at all, except for emails. . . I would like to start doing some creative writing but I don’t know where to start, as in, what do I write about, and whether it’s actually worth bothering with or not. I’d probably be more inclined to do it if there was a competition or group I could join online or something like that. . . Does anyone do any writing or their own, if so, how did you get started? And what have you gotten out of it?.

  4. I am concerned about the water that does not drain at the dog park trough. I have heard others express concerns as well. Who do I contact?


  6. I have to say that for the past few of hours i have been hooked by the amazing posts on this site. Keep up the good work.

  7. Together with the whole thing which seems to be building throughout this particular subject material,
    all your perspectives happen to be quite stimulating.
    Nevertheless, I appologize, but I do not subscribe to your entire
    idea, all be it exciting none the less. It seems to
    us that your commentary are generally not entirely rationalized and in actuality you are generally yourself not really entirely confident
    of the argument. In any event I did enjoy looking
    at it.
