ChildSafe is moving its children’s advocacy center from the far Westside of San Antonio to a new $28.5 million facility on the Eastside near Salado Creek. The nonprofit serving abused and neglected children purchased 36 acres of land for its expansion project and donated 21 acres to the City of San Antonio to build a greenway trail on the creek. City Council formally accepted the donation Thursday.
The trail will connect the creek to ChildSafe’s own green space plans, which will include rooftop gardens, courtyards, healing gardens, and activity areas for clients, staff, and partners. The property also is adjacent to Martin Luther King Park.
