No Name Park Gets a Name

No Name Park Gets a Name

On Tuesday, December 12 at the Schertz City Council meeting, Council took action to name the park located at 3175 Schertz Parkway between Ashley Park Drive and Jonas Drive. 


The park will be named after Mary Whitfield Burks, a Schertz resident since 1965 who worked to improve and grow the City to where it is now. Mary Whitfield Burks Park is intended to supplement the recreational use Schertz Parkway provides runners and walkers.


The park will feature outdoor exercise equipment, seating, and a water fountain. The intent is to provide active residents the opportunity to jog into the park to get an additional work out in and then proceed on their route along the parkway. A park naming ceremony will be held in Mary Whitfield Burks' honor in the near future. Stay tuned to Schertz.com and the City Facebook page for more information.
