About the Land Bridge

Phil Hardberger Park is divided by Wurzbach Parkway. Connecting the east and west sides of the park is critical to creating a cohesive natural area and protecting the wildlife living in the park. A Land Bridge is under construction to connect the two sides. It will be completed in 2020.

The Robert L.B. Tobin Land Bridge at Phil Hardberger Park will be 150 feet wide, broad enough for animals and people to safely cross, as described in the park's master plan.  It will cost $23 million. More than just a way to cross from one side to the other, the Land Bridge will be a continuation of the natural beauty of the park. People crossing it will have the experience of climbing over a hill, unaware of the traffic below. 

 Features of the Land Bridge

  • One-of-a-kind SkyWalk, an elevated walkway that gently climbs through the tree tops to the top of the bridge.
  • ADA trail, making the bridge accessible to everyone.
  • Best practices of Low Impact Development, creating opportunities for education on conservation, wildlife and the Texas Landscape.
  • Unique design for people AND animals, the only bridge in the world to serve both.
The Conservancy commissioned the design of this iconic Land Bridge in 2014 and raised $10 million for the project. The City of San Antonio 2017 Bond includes funding for the remaining $13 million.
