Maverick Park Going to the Dogs

Maverick Park is a small, somewhat barren and uninviting pocket park located at the corner of Broadway and Jones south of the Pearl Brewery and east of the San Antonio Museum of Art. Save for occasional festivals, Fiesta parades and other events, Maverick Park usually sits empty most of the year, save for the occasional cluster of homeless visitors.

Stewards Safeguard Creek Trail Users

The San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department has deployed 10 trail stewards along the Salado, Leon Creek, and Medina River trails of the Howard W. Peak Greenway Trails System to promote safety, render aid, and help cyclists, runners, and pedestrians who are new trail users with maps and directions.
