In less than 20 years, San Antonio has more than tripled its acreage of park land, from 7,565 acres  in 1999 to 29,692 in 2017. 

Parks are considered to be "essential public services." They serve the community in many ways, from promoting public health and community engagement to providing environmental, aesthetic and economic benefits.
