Is your park open? Check here first

Monday, May 6, 2019 by Tai Moses

If you’re planning a springtime picnic at an Austin-area park, you’d be advised to first check and make sure your favorite neighborhood park is indeed open for business. Maintenance work, temporary flooding, renovations, sewage leaks, landslides – there are a lot of things that can close a park down. The Parks and Recreation Department maintains a webpage that lists all the latest park, pool, trail and recreation center closures. So go ahead and pack that picnic, but check the PARD website before you leave home.
