A playground for Dick Nichols

Friday, May 18, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

Dick Nichols District Park is getting a new playground, and the Austin Parks and Recreation Department is looking for public input on the project. To that end, the city is holding a community meeting on Tuesday, June 5, from 6 until 7 p.m. at the Hampton Branch Public Library, located at 5125 Convict Hill Road. The meeting is a two-way affair, where the city will let residents know about future plans and residents will, in turn, let the city know what they think of those plans. Alternately, those interested in the park but not interested in attending the meeting can learn more by calling Patrick Beyer at 512-974-9476 or emailing him at
