Help Zilker’s garden grow
Friday, March 16, 2018 by Katy McElroy
The Parks and Recreation Department is looking to enhance the 26-acre Zilker Botanical Garden and has announced the first phase of developing the project’s master plan. This involves public meetings “to gather input from residents as we assess the garden’s historical development and existing site features, with an eye towards current and future needs, programming opportunities and improved access.” Three meetings are planned for next week. The first will be Monday, March 19, at Fiesta Gardens, 2101 Jesse E. Segovia St., 6-8 p.m., and the second will be Wednesday, March 21, at the Northwest Recreation Center, 2913 Northland Drive, 6-8 p.m. The third workshop will be held Saturday, March 24, 10 a.m. to noon at the garden itself, and will include a tour of the garden guided by the planning team.
