Congress pocket park gets new look

Thursday, November 13, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano

Today, the Downtown Austin Alliance, Austin Parks Foundation and Parks and Recreation Department will present a revamped park next to the Congress Avenue Old Bakery Emporium. According to a statement from the Parks Department, DAA and APF each contributed $26,000 to the effort, and the Austin Parks and Recreation Department contributed staff and labor in kind. “With limited funding and extensive needs all over Austin, partnerships such as this are becoming more and more important,” said Colin Wallis, executive director of the Austin Parks Foundation. A “celebratory welcoming” of the new park will take place from 11 a.m. to noon today.
