Terraced Seating Unveiled at Dignowity Pushcart Derby!

Oct 17, 2012

The terraced seating being built on the old volleyball courts at Lockwood Park is in prime position for pushcart viewing and will be the centerpiece for fireworks watching and other community gatherings in the future for the Dignowity neighborhood.

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.

The public presentation of the completed design is scheduled to coincide with the 8th Annual Dignowity Hill Pushcart Derby. Join us at Lockwood Park at 801 N. Olive Street to celebrate the winning design with the residents of the Dignowity Hill neighborhood on Saturday, October 27, from noon to 6 p.m.

The 8th Annual Official Dignowity Hill Pushcart Derby invites participants to build and race pushcarts through the park. The races are the centerpiece of a neighborhood event designed to showcase public art and neighborhood goodwill. Previous entrants include schools, community centers and even a city council member. Admission to the event is free, and concessions will be available.
