During my visit I saw dozens of children going from exhibit to exhibit, interacting as they were supposed to, and very likely, learning all the while.</p> Wed, 02 Jul 2014 20:36:33 +0000 Jack Morgan 34406 at http://tpr.org H-E-B Body Adventure Not Just An Exhibit, An Interactive Experience With Health H-E-B Begin Downtown Expansion With South Flores Hike & Bike Trails, Park http://tpr.org/post/h-e-b-begin-downtown-expansion-south-flores-hike-bike-trails-park <p>The neighborhood improvements along South Flores that will lead into the construction of a downtown grocery store are now underway.</p><p>The improvements begin with Commanders House Park along South Flores. It's a green space not many San Antonians have gotten to enjoy. But that's changing because of H-E-B's project to add hike and bike trails, renovate its downtown headquarters, and add a 10,000 square foot grocery store.</p><p>Friday, workers began cutting down the fence separating the Commanders House from South Flores, where hike and bike trails will be placed.</p> Fri, 27 Jun 2014 20:55:23 +0000 Ryan Loyd 34170 at http://tpr.org Reyna Family Recalls Childhood
