ACL Fest helps fund park improvements

Wednesday, July 1, 2015 by Nora Ankrum

Several Austin parks and outdoor areas will be getting needed improvements soon thanks to the 2015 Austin City Limits Music Festival Fund program, which is awarding $150,000 in funding to local volunteer organizations. On Tuesday, the Austin Parks Foundation announced that the funds will be divided among six groups that have adopted area parks through the Adopt-a-Park program: Pease Park Conservancy, Friends of Murchison Pool, Austin YSML Sunshine Camps, North Austin Community Garden, Battle Bend Park and Dove Springs District Park. The ACL Music Festival donates funds every year to the foundation to help maintain the city’s parks and public spaces. According to the foundation’s announcement, past improvement projects “have included everything from play equipment to park furnishings, tree planting, trail construction, invasive species removal and dog park improvements.”
