Parking and Shuttle Service
Free on-site parking is available at NatureFest. This year, GSA is proud to partner with the City of San Antonio’s Parks & Recreation Department, who are hosting their annual Día del Árbol event just a half-mile away at Mission Marquee Plaza (3100 Roosevelt Ave., SATX 78214).
To boost accessibility and encourage attendance at both fun events, COSA Human Services has graciously agreed to provide free shuttle service running continuously between both locations and the nearby Tamōx Talōm Food Forest.
It will be a great day for nature on the south side!
