SAN ANTONIO – A community fundraising effort was held Tuesday afternoon to revitalize Maverick Park and build a dog park.

The park is located just north of downtown in the 1000 block of Broadway.

Organizers, who hope to raise $10,000 believe with the amount of pet friendly apartment buildings nearby, there is a need for such a park.

"The Maverick Park itself is a great piece of land with a lot of historical significance," said Alderete. "We feel that a dog park added there would really bolster the park's profile and boosting of the dog park profile of the city of San Antonio as well."

Proceeds from Tuesday's event will be matched and donated to the Crowd Funding Campaign.

So far $1,100 has been raised. To find out how you can help, click here.
