Brackenridge Park: Some Say ‘If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It’

More than 100 citizens poured into The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center Monday afternoon to express concerns about the Brackenridge Park Master Plan during the fourth of six public meetings this summer hosted by the City of San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department. Some citizens provided input to help develop the vision for the proposed park plan, but many citizens told master plan designers that the proposed changes aren’t wanted or needed.
