Next steps for Alliance Children’s Garden

Tuesday, January 22, 2019 by Tai Moses

The Alliance Children’s Garden design team is slated to present the project at a meeting of the Planning Commission on Tuesday, Jan. 22. The long-awaited children’s garden is the final component of Butler Park and represents the fulfillment of a multiyear master plan effort to provide the city of Austin with a multipurpose cultural park. The garden design team expects to receive the site development permit by the end of January with construction beginning in February and continuing through fall 2019. The park, at 1000 Barton Springs Rd., will be divided into four distinct spaces: The Hill Country Garden, the Rock & Slide Valley Garden, the Skyline Garden, and the Art & Culture Garden. While designed for children, the two-acre park will provide a variety of play and recreational experiences for visitors of all ages.
