Thank you San Antonio for voting Phil Hardberger Park as the Best City Park and the Best Dog Park in San Antonio for 2019, and several years running!
On July 27 there was a Nature Walk like none other. It was a walking writing workshop led by naturalist and poet, Mobi Warren. The poems that arose from that walk were beautiful, kind, a celebration of nature and the park, and sometimes even funny. Here are a few poems the participants were willing to share.
Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy has been working with Justin Moore from Texas By Air to capture some unique imagery of Phil Hardberger Park.

Set at the park’s Historic Homestead, the PHP Children’s Vegetable Garden is where children, ages 7 to 14 years old, get their hands dirty as they learn every aspect of gardening, from planting to harvesting. With the help of volunteers from the Bexar County Master Gardeners, children begin each Tuesday morning with a hands-on activity in the garden, followed by a related lesson.
Rain or shine, the garden class will meet every Tuesday morning (Sept. 10 - Dec. 10), from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Cost is $75 per family. Up to three children per family may share a plot.
*Registration opens on Monday, Aug. 5 at 9 a.m.

There is high demand for these classes and they fill up quick. There are just a few spots remaining in the Growing Up Wild classes and Starting Out Wild Bilingual classes.
The Land Bridge at Phil Hardberger Park will connect the two sides of the 330-acre park over Wurzbach Parkway, providing pedestrian, bicycle and wildlife mobility across a structure that is 150 feet wide and 189 feet long.
The savanna grasses typically suffer some damage from cold winter weather. This year is no exception and the tops of the grasses died, though the lower stems and roots remain healthy.
