Help beautify Little Walnut Creek Greenbelt
Wednesday, February 14, 2018 by Katy McElroy
The National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance program and Asakura Robinson, an urban planning firm based here in Austin, have been working on the master plan for improvements for the Little Walnut Creek Greenbelt. The greenbelt covers 206 acres in East Austin near the intersection of 51st Street and U.S. Highway 183. The area is largely undeveloped, and the goal of the master plan is to make it an attractive recreational space. The National Park Service would like to begin the process by collecting public feedback through a survey and several public meetings. The first such meeting will be Sunday, February 25, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Givens Recreation Center, and will consist of a presentation followed by open discussion, where attendees can share their thoughts on the state of the land today and what they would like to see happen with it in the future.
