    San Antonio, TX 78256
    Description: In an urbanized area like San Antonio and Bexar County where do you go to enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of nature? How can remaining unspoiled natural areas with their living plants and animals be preserved and protected and how can such areas be made available for the enjoyment of people? These must have been thoughts that stirred Mrs. Norma Friedrich Ward, who in memory of her parents, bequeathed 180 acres of virgin Texas Hill Country property now known as EMILIE AND ALBERT FRIEDRICH PARK for public use. Mr. W.L. Mathews and Associates contributed an additional 52 adjacent acres to compliment Mrs. Ward's bequest.
