The Conservancy

The Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy was founded by a group of dedicated citizens interested in developing a new urban park for San Antonio and the surrounding community. In May 2006, the Friends of Voelcker Park was established to organize individuals interested in the city's purchase of the Voelcker property to form a city park. Now the Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy, this 501(c)3 nonprofit organization supports all aspects of the park, from planning activities to fundraising.
