The Future of Aggie Park Belongs to Us!
"When Aggies see a need, their energy and their selflessness draw others into the cause, and good things happen."
Joe B. Foster '56
Aggie Park is home for Aggies in San Antonio. It is where we are united by our strong values, selfless service, and special friendships. We have a common bond forged in College Station where we embody the spirit that "Can ne'er be told".
Aggie Park brings all the generations together under one maroon roof. Couples have fallen in love under its roof. Little ones have played on the slab first poured in 1953. Many have softly received the call "Here" at Muster.
We all have gathered at parties and celebrations held under the special maroon roof. Couples who kicked up their heels have watched their grandchildren and then great-grandchildren dance in front of the same fireplace. Young Aggies working their way toward Senior Boots and Rings have shared their pride at the Aggie Park podium. You will not escape the overwatch of events by Aggie Womens' Club and Aggie Moms' Club. Volunteers galore have fed the Fightin' Texas Aggie Band along with the Parsons Mounted Cavalry, Ross Volunteers, and Fish Drill Team here.
As we approach our Club's 100th anniversary we reflect that Aggie Park is more than a building, so much more. Together, let's make Aggie Park's architecture match the extraordinary meaning for us. We build on the shoulders of those that envisioned a greater purpose. Give with your hands and your heart as we unite at our expanded Aggie Park.

About the Expansion:
The new design incorporates a 30 foot expansion on the south wall of the building, expanding the room over part of the current open patio which measures 53 feet long. Additionally, some of the current open patio space will be kept and become a covered terrace which will be a great area for additional outdoor seating out of the sun. We also have plans to rework the remaining open patio space so that we can utilize all the great outdoor areas we have for our Club events. With the expansion of the building, we will have a new option to center the stage in the room which moves the front of the room directly across from the kitchen and bar area. This layout will make the room wider instead of longer and will allow better table placement to the stage.
As designs and plans are further established to take us through the next steps, we are able to set a timetable for construction to begin. With the 100 year anniversary of the Club coming up soon in 2021, our goal is to have the building completed in 2020 so we can dedicate the newest addition of the building at Muster on April 21, 2021.
Construction is planned to begin in January 2020 and we are reserving 6 months for the completion of the project. Stay tuned for event plans when the building is under construction.
