Aransas Pathways (AP) dedicated its newest information kiosk Thursday, June 1 with a ribbon cutting by the Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce Bay Blazers. The new kiosk, which complements the major kiosks located at the Pathways Pavilion on Tule Creek, is located at the intersection of Live Oak and North streets, on the west side of the parking lot surrounding the railroad depot in downtown Rockport.
AP Co-chairman De McLallen said the new kiosk, which directs people to AP sites, is located close to the geographic center of the county.
“On behalf of AP, I thank Aransas County and the City of Rockport for all their support,” said McLallen.
Aransas County Judge Ray Garza noted he started attending AP meetings about a year ago, and the concept for this new kiosk was introduced at the first meeting he attended.
“Great job on the kiosk,” he said. “As simple as it is, it’s great,” he said.
Pam Wheat-Stranahan said the new kiosk compliments the more detailed kiosks located at the Pathways Pavilion.
“This kiosk is located on a great corridor,” she said. “We hope the AP (hike/bike trails) go from one end of the county to the other one day. That was our hope 12 years ago (when it all started).”
One can take in the information found on the new kiosk, or simply take a picture of the QR code and download all pertinent AP information.
“When the new courthouse and city hall are completed we want to put another one (kiosk) in Celebration Plaza,” said Wheat-Stranahan.
The new kiosk should last quite a while. The current AP signs, installed up to 10-plus years ago, still look good, and are readable.
“Almost all the AP signs survived Hurricane Harvey,” said McLallen.
