The Lockwood Park Lighter! Quicker! Cheaper! project repurposes unused sand volleyball courts to create terraced seating with flat ledge rock and grass seating areas. The terraces are wide enough to spread a blanket or to set up temporary seating for community events. Texas Public Radio presents the official unveiling of this winning design in the Lighter! Quicker! Cheaper! initiative in partnership with the City of San Antonio, the Project for Public Spaces and the AIA San Antonio.
