Eastwood signage dedication postponed to June

Thursday, February 10, 2022 by Tai Moses

The unveiling of new historical signage for Eastwoods Park has been postponed and rescheduled for the summer to coincide with the annual Juneteenth festivities. Juneteenth historical interpretation signage and a Lone Star Legacy Award plaque, which were installed at the park last year, will be officially dedicated in a joint ceremony on June 11 at 11:00 a.m. Eastwoods Park, the site of Wheeler’s Grove, one of Austin’s earliest Emancipation parks, was once a favorite location for the local Black community to celebrate Juneteenth. The Eastwoods Neighborhood Association proposed a Juneteenth interpretive sign last year after surveying the surrounding community and raising funds for the installation.
