Making Drake

Tuesday, April 16, 2019 by Tai Moses

The Trail Foundation and the city’s Parks and Recreation Department are throwing a pop-up community engagement event to solicit input on Drake Bridge Commons. Right now, there’s not much of a there there, and it’s kind of dark and dank under the bridge. That’s why the Trail Foundation hired top-notch Austin designers Rios Clementi Hale Studios to bring some light and beauty to the space and the water’s edge beneath the bridge. But they also want the community’s input to help envision the future of Drake Bridge Commons. So drop by Butler Trail at Drake Bridge – under the First Street Bridge, north shore of Lady Bird Lake – and share your thoughts and ideas on Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. If you can’t make it, visit to take a survey or check in about upcoming meetings.
