" Yo apoyo porque..."
We need something to be proud of on the Eastside that’s safe and welcoming. Someplace to escape to, even for just a walk.

Anel

I want to see progress on the East Side. The success that Dignowity Hill has seen needs to spread out to other communities like Denver Heights, Jefferson Heights, and Harvard Place. I feel this park will help give Dignowity Hill the boost it needs and will likely draw more people to that neighborhood and the neighborhoods around it.

Devin Walker

Our community deserves more!

Brian Dillard

Dignowity and Lockwood Parks reflect the vibrance of this diverse community. The more they also reflect public investment, the more the community will feel that their city supports them, and take pride in their neighborhood. It’s the chance to really get something right on the Eastside, and spur more positive change. Why not start with something everyone can enjoy?

Bekah McNeel

I would like to move to the neighborhood in the near future and I believe this would be a great amenity!

Dan Carter

I need a “road diet” in my life!

Kristian Browning

I live in proximity to the Park and know this project will be catalytic to both the East side and downtown.

Liz Burt

I am signing because when we moved near the area my heart sank when i drove by this neighborhood. I couldn’t believe how little this neighborhood had, but i did notice this big area empty, filled with sadness. I was happy to see this petition. Finally, someone cares. This neighborhood deserves a park… people deserve to be seen, not hidden in our community.

Melissa

I think this is a great vision for an under-utilized park.

Lorie Campos

Its very important to make this happen, me and my neighbors are asking to PLEASE! PLEASE! MAKE THIS HAPPEN. Our children need a boost to their home in a brighter neighborhood!

Lou Hedz

We want the park to be a place where the community feels safe and welcomed, with inspiring places for youth and adults alike to play and learn.

Andrea Figueroa / Martinez St. Women's Center

It is so important that we continue to create more usable green space in San Antonio’s urban core so that we showcase how great our city truly is.

Lara Fischer / SA Current

This park is important to the transformation on the East side. It will bring the community together.

Courtney Lay

Beautiful , functional, well programmed parks are critical to community in urban environments

James Andrews

It’s encouraging to see participatory design in action. The redevelopment of these parks would bring healing and energy to an area that has long under appreciated its own potential. Let’s make this happen!

Jeff Snyder

It’s the right thing to do.

Robert Rivard

Public spaces like these help define great cities. We all want to see San Antonio continue to grow, and investing in vibrant neighborhoods like Dignowity Hill support that goal.

John Douglas Burleson

I am signing because improving our parks gives my kids a place to be a kid.

Nicole Montez

The east side deserves a great park!

Andrew Herdeg

A beautiful solution to an important problem our parks have. This proposal will help activate a community and bring positive energy into the neighborhood. Exciting!

Gabe Winter

I was just there yesterday running with my dogs and wondered where everybody was. It’s a great space that goes unused 75% of the time.

Frank Trejo

Supporting “20 minute” neighborhoods with walking distance amenities.

Ryan Yaden

I love the East side!

Angel Lopez

I believe in the community.

Kimberly Hawthorne

This park is in my neighborhood. I enjoy spending time here with my family. Improving this community space is just what we need.

Oscar Jr. Felan

Urban public green spaces improve our quality of life on many levels – let’s invest in revitalizing one that already has a solid foundation!

Tia Moen

This is very important for our community to connect with the outdoors.

Penelope Speier

I love the expansion of outdoor development to improve the general health of SA!

Nicole Sanchez

I am the Historic Building Enforcement Officer and drive by daily and its one of the best areas of town.

Branden Dross

I am moving to the area and would love a park like this. I can see this bringing the community together

William Moore

This park has so much potential. It would be a shame not to fund such a wonderful project. And it’s right in the heart of the Eastside….where we need these types of projects.

Audrey McNaughton

We live in the neighborhood with a new baby and we’d love a place to spend time as a family!

Katie Williams

We have invested in Dignowity Hill and planted our family here. We think this corner of the city will be beautiful again in part because of efforts like this.

Justin Flores

Parks are health.

Amanda Merck

Would love to see the vision realized.

Mark Wittig

Developing green space will become more valuable as this city grows over the next 40 years. As downtown develops this will become a true gem for future urban dwellers. It may not have the initial “flash” of a “land bridge” but long term it will be the better investment and be looked upon as the more valuable treasure.

Ralph Church

I support because… it’s boring!

Millie Smith / Grandmother

Awesome idea, will help lots of people!

Ben Bowman

I care about our city and want to see more people want to live downtown to keep up with the historical value we have here and bring wealth to the City of San Antonio.

We are passionate about creating accessible events for the people of San Antonio!

San Antonio Current

En la base del puente Hays y a solo unos minutos del rio, los parques gemelos de la parte Este de la ciudad podrían estar floreciendo. El parque mas bello de San Antonio nunca debería de encontrarse vacío. A pesar de la presencia determinante de la comunidad sobre el parque y un renombre a nivel urbano cada vez mayor, siguen existiendo defectos físicos y las preocupaciones persistentes de la seguridad evitan que muchos residentes disfruten de el. La parte Este y San Antonio merecen mejor.

Un parque revitalizado esta a nuestro alcance si actuamos rápidamente. El bono municipal del 2017 es nuestra oportunidad para enfocarnos en una mejora a los problemas de infraestructura y echar a andar el proyecto. El bono, combinado con recaudación de fondos, desarrollo de diseño, y investigación tomara tiempo y recursos. Estas necesidades se pueden satisfacer con un gran apoyo intersectorial.

Es importante notar que P.S. East a impulsado el proyecto notablemente. El potencial increíble de la visión para el parque excitan a los residentes de la comunidad, los negocios locales y a los funcionarios de la ciudad.

El Primer Vistazo

Los siguientes ejemplos exponen un inventario visual de ideas recolectadas entre julio 2015 a febrero 2016 de el taller “Future of Our Park”. El taller de diseño se tomo acabo en Siclovia Fall 2015 y atrajo a 350 personas en cual encuestas fueron conducidas en los eventos D2, Ella Austin y Bowden Elementary. El taller también consistió de entrevistas a accionistas, grupos de enfoque y conversaciones con la comunidad. Entre primavera y verano, las ideas del programa estuvieron abiertas los opinión del publico por la pagina web y fueron reintroducidas durante el  “Dignowity Hill Farmer’s Market” en el 2016 ante de una fase de diseño conceptual de tres meses. Este esfuerzo de diseño busca utilizar la reacción de la comunidad para ayudar a darle prioridad a propuestas de mejora en preparación para el programa del bono de 2017 y proporcionar oportunidad para recaudar fondos. El plan del proyecto seguirá siendo actualizado, publicado y investigado entre otoño y primavera durante varios de eventos públicos. Si el financiamiento para las mejoras del proyecto son aprobadas por el programa del bono del 2017, la primera fase de mejoras será determinado por la comunidad durante el ciclo de cinco años del bono. Todos los planos e imágenes mostrados son solamente para propósitos de investigación. Si usted quisiera ofrecer propuestas personales o gustaría una cita con accionistas del programa, por favor dirige sus comentarios por correo electrónico a info@pseast.org.

“Hilltop Playscape” es un lugar único situado en el punto mas alto del parque de Lockwood con vista hacia el centro de San Antonio. Elementos naturales, estructuras acogedoras y diseño orientado hacia la comunidad invitara a las familias y vecindad a que disfruten del parque. El diseño también agrega valor y  podrá dar avances a las iniciativas del programa “TPR Lighter! Quicker! Cheaper!.”  

Vista de la loma – Antes y Después

Vista de la calle – Antes y Después

Bordes y esquinas elegantes invita a gente al parque, activa zonas muertas y integra paisajes urbanos. La banqueta se ensancha y se alinea con arboles nuevos, bancas e iluminación, dando vida al parque a todas horas del día.

A lo largo de la calle Hackberry, una “dieta del camino” crea un acceso peatonal mas seguro al parque substituyendo un carril de trafico por un divisor natural de plantas y un nuevo estacionamiento. Un paseo con infraestructura para las paradas del mercado es anclada por un pequeño quisco para bocadillos en un extremo y sanitarios públicos en el otro. Una parada de autobús renovada se integra con un refugio actualizado y un punto de “B-cycle.”

a lo largo de la calle Olive, un estacionamiento nuevo y el paisaje ancho permiten que se disfrute el horizonte.

A lo largo de la calle Nolan, pistas de caminata y bicicleta cerca de la calle ofrece una alternativa de paseo elevada. Instalaciones de arte en el sitio provee el parque con una identidad única y distinguida a lo largo de este borde visible.
