The Sons of Maverick performed on May 6, 2016 at the Cypress Pavilion in Brackenridge Park in San Antonio.
The occasion was a fundraiser for the Brackenridge Park Conservancy, a non-profit organization which is doing a great job of preserving and enhancing the park’s natural, historic, educational and recreational resources. The Conservancy raises funds for park development projects, implements park-based programs and projects, advises City staff and Council, and works closely with the San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department to develop and implement plans for the park.
We were pleased to be a part of this festive event as we entertained passengers embarking and disembarking from the Brackenridge Eagle, the delightful miniature train that runs through the park.
Located just below the headwaters of the San Antonio River, Brackenridge Park features 343 acres of recreational space within the city. Included within its reach are playgrounds, pavilions, hiking trails, the San Antonio Zoo, the Japanese Tea Garden, the Witte Museum and the oldest municipal golf course in Texas. The park also reflects evidence of early human habitation as disclosed by Native American artifacts dating as early as 9200 B.C.
Kudos to the Brackenridge Park Conservancy for its fine work. More info about the park and the Conservancy is available at www.brackenridgepark.org.
