I would like to invite you to become a member of Friends of the Parks! Organized in 2003 by the San Antonio Parks Foundation, Friends of the Parks is a city wide, volunteer support organization for our local parks system.
Each and every one of us is aware of the benefits of parks and green space. From improving our physical and psychological health, to strengthening our communities, and making our cities and neighborhoods more attractive places to live and work - the benefits of parks are endless! And my objective as President is to broaden the base of supporters to advocate for our public park system, to provide a stronger link between our neighborhoods, individual citizens and the parks, and to create and renovate more park space for the enjoyment of all citizens.
Whether you are interested in volunteering during one of our “Helping Hands” workdays in a local park, participating in our largest Friends sponsored event, “Fest of Tails”, or want to be included in fun volunteer opportunities, hike and bike activities, or exciting tours and trips to Texas parks, a membership in Friends of the Parks is for you!
For a complete list of our upcoming events and activities, be sure to check out our online calendar. Bookmark the page for quick access and check back often for updates!
With your help we can further protect and enhance the rich natural, cultural, and historic resources found within our beautiful San Antonio Parks. I look forward to seeing you in a park soon!
You can help Friends of the Parks in its mission to bring
green to San Antonio by becoming a member today!
