Burn ban still in effect

Monday, July 24, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

As we noted last week, all city of Austin parkland is currently under burn ban restrictions. That means no fire building or grilling with wood or charcoal BBQ pits (and other related cooking devices) in city parks. The city’s Parks and Recreation Department reminds us that smoking cigarettes is always prohibited in its public parks. The city isn’t alone: Travis, Williamson and Hays counties are all under burn bans until further notice.
