See how unused sand volleyball courts became convenient public seating for community events. Texas Public Radio, the City of San Antonio, the Project for Public Spaces and the AIA San Antonio present the terraced seating at Lockwood Park -- the winning design in the Lighter! Quicker!

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.  

Texas Public Radio invites listeners to attend the 2012–2013 season of “Carnegie Hall Live” from the comfort of their own homes. Presented by Carnegie Hall, American Public Media and WQXR-FM, the series includes eleven live broadcasts through April 2013.

Mayor Castro's Brainpower Taskforce identified early childhood education as the best way for the city to address the city's education problem, a recommendation that led to the development of the Pre-K 4 SA program.

Since this initiative has generated such heated discussion and debate, we are bringing together representatives on different sides and disciplines who can help us shed some light and explain the viewpoints at work.
