Council adopts PARD’s long-range plan

Monday, January 13, 2020 by Tai Moses

City Council has adopted the Parks and Recreation Department’s long-range plan, Our Parks, Our Future, a blueprint that will guide the evolution of the city’s parks and recreation system over the next 10 years. PARD says the plan “reflects the community’s desire for expansion of Austin’s trail system, immersive natural experiences, and expanded arts and culture programming in parks.” The parks department has been working on the plan since fall 2018, and the completed plan is the result of careful analysis of existing assets and in-depth community engagement of “citizens, park supporters, conservancies, neighborhood associations, nonprofit organizations and public partners.” Find a link to Our Parks, Our Future here.
