Park History 

The City of Windcrest’s Takas Park was acquired and developed under the administration of Mayor E. James Seal (1971 to 1974). Takas Park is built on land, which originally was in the City of San Antonio, Texas, and through a de-annexation process, the land was obtained by the City of Windcrest for a community park serving Windcrest and its surrounding areas. In addition to its use as a community park and portion of the park was dedicated to Little League baseball fields.

Park Dedication

On April 10, 1995, Takas Park was officially dedicated to Steve and Louise “Lou” Takas for their years of service to the City of Windcrest. Steve Takas, Sr. served as the Windcrest Volunteer Fire Department’s Fire Chief, City of Windcrest’s Building Official, Code Enforcement Officer, and Fire Marshall. Louise “Lou” Takas was involved in many aspects of City government. She was a member of the Windcrest Volunteer Fire Department and was responsible for the Annual Firemen’s Picnic. Lou is most noted for the Christmas Angel Project which provided needy area families with Christmas food and gift items. Lou was the driving force behind the Angel Project until her passing; the program continues today with Windcrest Elementary School and continues to provide many needy families with a joyous Christmas. Steve Takas Jr., son of Steve Sr. and Lou, has served as the City of Windcrest’s Municipal Court Judge since 1980.

Local Parks Grant from the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department

In May of 2006, former Mayor Jack H. Leonhardt and Public Works Director, Charles Lackey applied for and were awarded a grant to beautify the walking trails from Takas Park to Windy Hollow. The State of Texas sales tax on sporting goods partially funded the project and the Windcrest Public Works Department spent several months putting in the bridges, benches and exercise equipment along the trails.
