WHERE DO MEMBERSHIP DUES GO?
Very few residents pay dues now. What little is in the treasury pays for electricity on the entrance island, plus website hosting for this website. The lights need to stay on--a dark entrance is an invitation to more crime. And this website helps us stay informed about issues in our neighborhoods. For more about this, see here:

C.O.P. Report, February, 2014

On January 17—an attack was reported by a woman on the Ox Bow Park trail at 10 p.m. on a Friday night.  On Jan. 29
 it came out that it was a hoax. San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said the allegation about an attack that took
 place on Jan. 17 on the trails at the Leon Creek Greenway never happened and the woman just made it up. Police Chief
 McManus said, “This simply didn't happen. Crime is actually down in the parks -- way down -- and it’s just 
unfortunate that the city and people who use these parks to go and relax and exercise had to have that concern.”

Police presence has been stepped up in the area. But they encourage anyone walking or jogging in the area to keep 
these crime prevention tips in mind:

  • Be aware of your surroundings and know where you are at all times.
  • Don’t be distracted by your phones, tablets, etc.
  • Don’t wear ear buds in both ears while walking or jogging to music.
  • Avoid walking or running alone.
  • Avoid isolated or deserted areas.
  • Be aware of the potential hazards that exist of walking or jogging when it’s dark.
  • Bright/reflective clothing or mini lights are recommended if it’s early morning or dusk.
  • If you are walking and anything makes you feel uncomfortable, trust your instincts, keep your phone handy and prepare to take action.
Report suspicious or criminal activity to police right away.
