Phil Hardberger Park is devoted to developing our 330-acre natural park for use by our community. With the help of our Conservancy and our community we are committed to raising the funds needed to accomplish our goals and projects.
Most projects in the park are outlined in the Phil Hardberger Park Master Plan. As important as it is to fund and complete each of those projects, the park has many other needs. Some needs come from unexpected opportunities to enhance the park.
History is a big part of Phil Hardberger Park. The land that now makes up the park was once the Voelcker family's dairy farm. The Conservancy is working with many organizations to preserve the old Voelcker homestead as a place for learning about San Antonio's agrarian heritage.
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. The ideal way to connect the two sides is to build a Land Bridge broad enough for animals and people to safely cross, as is described in the park's master plan.
