During July and August 2019, we will be reconfiguring the entrance and exit gates to the grounds, so access and events will be very limited. The Pavilion will be available Monday-Friday, 8 am to 6 pm. Access is through a gate on Torcido Road that is west of the main gate currently under construction. For help call the office at 210-824-5387.
