Community welcomes Holly Trail

Friday, December 3, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano

This weekend, Austinites are invited to attend the official groundbreaking of the Holly Trail Segment of the Hike-and-Bike Trail, which is a first step toward connecting the trail and converting to parkland the shore adjacent to the Holly Street Power Plant. In 2007, operation ceased at the plant, with the official decommission coming in 2017 after decades of activism from the neighborhood and members of the Holly Decommissioning Committee. The trail is just one part of the extensive plan for the area, which includes a playscape, pool and restroom. Saturday’s groundbreaking will include a recognition of the work of the decommissioning committee. Saturday, Dec. 4, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., 2300 Riverview St.
