Citizens are now able to use free Wi-Fi at South Side Lions Park. Wi-Fi is now available inside the community center and nearby playground and in the playground and pavilion area on the lake off Pecan Valley Drive.
This important initiative, spearheaded by District 3 Councilwoman Leticia Ozuna who first announced it in February, gives youngsters living in the area the opportunity to bring their laptops and other electronic devices to the Wi-Fi hot spots and connect to the Internet to complete homework, check college Blackboards for assignments, and connect with friends and family via social media. Citizens who want to research and apply for jobs and enjoy other on-line pastimes benefit from it as well.
The initiative also complements free Wi-Fi service offered at the Woodlawn Lake Park Community Room, which opened in December. There, citizens may also bring their laptops and electronic devices to access the Internet in the community room located adjacent to Woodlawn Gymnasium.
Providing Wi-Fi is another of the many ways that the City of San Antonio seeks to be responsive and instep with the needs of citizens who utilize technology to provide better lives for themselves and their families.
