...I really enjoyed the mixture of exotic plants, such as bamboo, with the native plants. I also thought that the flow of the park and all the subtitle details were very well conceived and appropriate as a remembrance....Overall, I believe it is a huge success as a piece of public art and I plan to visit again.

...The landscape architecture was amazing. The plants were beautiful and they ranged from common to exotic...I hope to go back to the bark and see the Natchez mock orange tree, called Chris’ Tree, in bloom. The park successful ness embodies a feeling of invitation and whose features can be enjoyed by people of all ages....

... Our second stop, Chrispark, was amazing! I loved everything about this place. Immediately, you step into another world that is so personal to someone you don’t even know and yet you feel you’ve shared something with them after you leave.

On our public art field trip, I would have to say that my favorite part was seeing Chrispark. I enjoyed how the park seemed to be a little oasis inside of downtown San Antonio.
