Peggy Mays Garden
"will be a series of heavily planted areas, small trails and rest areas with a mix of plant species to attract pollinators."
"My mother was devoted to adding beauty and improving life for all San Antonians," Kathy Mays Johnson said in a press release. "Our family cannot think of a better way to honor her than with these exquisite gardens at Hemisfair that everyone can enjoy for generations."
The grant will fund the "design, construction and maintenance of the garden, including planting, trees, lighting and ample seating to pause and reflect on the beauty of nature."
