Palomino Park

In partnership with the San Antonio Sports School Parks Program, Palo Alto College is dedicating approximately one acre of land for a playground park. The new park will provide a safe and family-friendly space for children and their families to promote community fitness and ecological awareness. The park will be located in close proximity to the existing PAC fitness trail, adjacent to the campus’s Natatorium and Fitness Center and Ozuna Library with community access from Villaret Boulevard.
