SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A mother snapping photos of her son and his prom date at a South Texas park wrongly had to pay a $20 permit fee and she can get her money back.
KSAT-TV (http://bit.ly/14jsIN3 ) reports the San Antonio Parks Foundation photo policy is being reviewed after the incident at the Japanese Tea Garden.
Professional photographers must pay $20 to use the beautiful, well-groomed grounds. The funds help pay for maintenance.
Yolanda Estrada was assessed the fee Saturday while taking the photos using a small, basic camera. Her son and his date wore formal attire.
The president of the San Antonio Parks Foundation said Monday that Estrada should not have been charged and can get a refund. Howard Peak says the foundation will work to better educate staff and visitors about policies.
