Chris Park in San Antonio, Texas (#9 for #SA2020Resolutions)
By Colleen Pence, SA2020 Resolutions Outdoorsy Leader (follow her here!)
Only a mother’s abiding love could produce a park this beautiful.
In the middle of downtown San Antonio, if you know just where to look, you’ll find small, tranquil, lushly landscaped Chrispark.
Built in 2005 at 111 Camp Street by the late Linda Pace, an art patron and daughter of the Pace Picante Sauce family, Chrispark is a living tribute to the memory of her son, Christopher Goldbury, who passed away in 1997.
There are no playgrounds here, no sprawling fields of grass through which kids can run. But children are drawn to the quiet beauty of this joyful place nevertheless.
