The beloved "hay art" at Phil Hardberger Park is going away, but that doesn't mean they will be left with nothing. Art lovers will have something new to celebrate starting this weekend.
Makin’ Hay depicts giant human-like characters stacked up to 17 feet tall, made of steel and bales of hay, involved in various activities. Parks Project Manager Sandy Jenkins said the art is being removed this week and being taken to its home in Bentonville, Ark.
San Antonio is opening its first major Urban Ecology Center this weekend in Phil Hardberger Park. The city said the new venue is designed as a gathering place for nature studies and major events.
With over 18,000 square feet, the new facility can offer space for everything from gardening classes to large wedding receptions. Parks Project Manager Sandy Jenkins said the facility is built for the purpose of education on anything having to do with nature.
SACU, Texas Public Radio (TPR) and community partners sponsored a volunteer community project to recreate the savanna that once covered much of Phil Hardberger Park, planting native grass sprigs in a grassland restoration. This was an official event of National Public Lands Day, postponed due to heavy rains on Sept.
