2018 Leon Valley Park Survey Results
 
Thank you to all that participated in our recent Park Survey request. The response was great and the information collected will assist our Park Commissioners in revising the Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Master Plan and in prioritizing resident requested improvements over the coming years. This also helps the City Council budget accordingly. Some of the suggestions for improvements are actually going to be installed this fiscal year. Improvements for FY 2019 include:
 
  • Shade structure for Raymond Rimkus Park playground
  • Benches and mile markers around walking paths at all parks
  • Rework walking paths so they are smoother
  • Replacing water fountains, some picnic tables
  • Playground, picnic shelter, walking path, benches, and recycle bins at The Ridge at Leon Valley Park (end of Grass Hill Drive)
  • Outdoor fitness equipment at Old Mill Park
  • More trees and other plantings at all of the parks
 
Other improvements will have to be budgeted in future years, but we now know what you would like to enjoy at each park. The full summary of the 2018 Park Survey may be viewed on our website at http://www.leonvalleytexas.gov/news_detail_T5_R740.php For questions, please contact Public Works at (210) 681-1232.
Food and Fund Drive: SA Food Bank

The City of Leon Valley along with the community annually assists The San Antonio Food Bank to actively fight Hunger and Feed Hope in San Antonio and Southwest Texas. We will begin accepting donations on November 1st and will run through November 19th. Please help make this event a great success!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Does SA Bank accept non-food donations? Yes, household items such as paper towels, toilet paper, diapers as well as pet food are always appreciated. Please note these items will not be included in the food donation collection. Instead, please drop by the Fire Dept or call Lisa Martin at 210-684-3219. Thank you and Stay Safe!
