Manu Ginobili makes an appearance at Eisenhower Park ribbon cutting

He bikes the trails regularly and helped celebrate their ribbon cutting this past weekend

On Saturday, San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with the District 8 City Council office celebrated the connection of over 86 miles of biking trails connecting the Salado Creek and Leon Creek greenway trails.

The event, free to the public, included a ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring Mayor Ron Nirenberg, District 8 Council Member Manny Peláez, Parks and Recreation Director Homer Garcia III, interim Arts and Culture Director Krystal Jones, and San Antonio Spurs legend Manu Ginobili.

Ginobili regularly posts his rides involving these same trails. Photos of Tim Duncan and Fabricio Oberto riding with El Cortazon can be seen on Ginobili’s social media.

Manu retired in 2018 after 16 seasons but returned to the Spurs this season as a special advisor to basketball operations. His new job focuses on player development.
