During tough economic times, progress on San Antonio's parks system has been accomplished with more ingenuity and less funding, according to Eric Lautzenheiser, assistant manager of the San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department.

"The city has faced the same fiscal challenges as everyone else," Lautzenheiser said recently, speaking to the Leon Springs Business Association. "We've had to hold tight and reduce expenses."
Even so, the original natural preserve at Friedrich Park and surrounding Woodland Hills has doubled in size to 600 acres, with 240 acres open to the public. Two grants have helped, said Lautzenheiser.
"By the end of the year, you'll see some 'parkscaping' and dressing up of the park," he said.
...
"We're making real progress in putting these pieces together," Lautzenheiser said, urging citizens to make recommendationsif they see a possible preserve or park.
Near the Hills & Dales neighborhood, "Medallion Park was recommended by neighbors in the area," he said.

San Antonio might be lagging behind other large Texas cities in the number of parks for its residents, but there is a lot going on in the city right now as officials play catch up, according to Leon Springs Business Association guest speaker, Eric Lautzenheiser, natural areas superintendent for the San Antonio Parks Department.

...
"Our goal was to save about seven to eight acres, and we ended up saving seven, so I think we did quite well," Lautzenheiser said. "And we're two years ahead of schedule."
The original concept was to develop quadrants throughout the city, but that plan fell apart during the then-booming real estate market.
"The most bang for the buck was in the Northwest (quadrant)," Lautzenheiser said.
The 303-acre Voelcker Park stands out in the Northeast quadrant, which Lautzenheiser refers to as the demographic center of the city.
"(U.S.) Highway 281 over to (Interstate) 10, there is very little park and an awful lot of people," he said.
Lautzenheiser said a $1 million state matching grant is expected to be announced this week to further develop the park.
He envisions a nature center in the first part of Phase 2, where pre-school to senior residents can learn about solar energy, water recycling, xeriscaping, water harvesting and basic natural history
"All around us are nature centers. San Antonio has never had one," Lautzenheiser said.
"I'm so excited. We've been doing this out of our cars at Friedrich Park for years, but I wanted something in the center of the city."
In addition, Lautzenheiser said a great deal of infrastructure from the old working Voelcker farmstead is left over and he'd like to see it restored and operate as an educational tool for school children.
"In the future, we'd like to have a working pioneer farm, where kids can come to see a milk cow being milked, butter being churned, hens laying eggs, that kind of stuff," he said.
...
Lautzenheiser said city officials just launched what he called "probably the best overall solution" for developers, which is the Regional Habitat Conservation Plan.
He said the joint program between the city and Bexar County is an alternative to required consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Department, a process he says takes two to three years.
"You'd start public hearings and it would cost an unknown amount of money, you don't know what and you don't know what the market is going to be in two to three years," Lautzenheiser said. "You don't want to wait that long. That's why a lot of people are ignoring the Endangered Species Act."
With this arrangement, the city and county work out a mitigation plan for the whole region, which includes Bexar, Comal, Medina, Uvalde, Bandera, Kerr and Kendall counties, he said.
"We pre-negotiate, go through the entire public process and reach an agreement to mitigate the acreage for wildlife," Lautzenheiser said.
