The Austin Parks and Recreation Department announced Thursday that it had acquired part of the Tillery Street pecan grove slated for development as affordable housing. According to the parks department, the Austin Housing Finance Corporation will sell one or two acres of the 5.15 acres owned by the city in the Govalle neighborhood, which will allow for the preservation of the pecan grove and the creation of a park for the neighborhood.
