April 2019 Update: Austin Parks and Rec department is almost through the site plan permit process needed before park construction can begin. They’re going to be able to include playscapes, a picnic pavilion, basketball court, and walking trail, with only cutting down five trees!
Here’s an earlier site plan. There are a few changes to control runoff when we have a big rainstorm.
Here’s the anticipated schedule:
- Site Plan Approval: April 2019
- Conditional Use Permit: May 2019
- Construction Starts: June 2019
Volunteers will be moving some of the wildflowers after they bloom this spring, so that they won’t be destroyed by construction. Let us know if you’d like to help, or if you have a publicly visible spot in the neighborhood where they could be planted.
In the meantime, keep enjoying our park!
