The City of San Antonio Public Works and Parks and Recreation reminds campers to be mindful of their trash. There are trash bins and recycling bins available at all of the parks. No glass containers allowed. Food waste should be disposed of in trash cans. To help support trash management and from littering more, guests are urged to bring their own trash bags and remove any trash at the end of their stay. To help support proper trash management, Park Stewardship team as well as volunteers will be handing out extra trash bags and promoting recycling opportunities.
“We’re excited to continue our city’s Easter tradition by allowing camping at select parks over the holiday weekend. Families, friends and neighbors can enjoy spending time together, outdoors, in our city’s beautiful green spaces.” said Homer Garcia III, Director of Parks and Recreation. “We encourage visitors to do their part to ensure our parks remain clean by disposing of litter and recyclables properly. Whatever you pack into the park, please remember to pack it out.” During 2022, Easter weekend visitors disposed of 19 tons of trash and 5 tons of recycling in Brackenridge Park alone.
On another note, the wildlife management team will be doing ongoing activities at Brackenridge Park and Woodlawn Lake Park. These activities will include loud noises from clapper boards to pyrotechnics. Campers at these locations may hear noises that resemble fireworks. This is for bird deterrent and has been approved by the USDA Wildlife Services Division.
