Onion Creek Park Plan meeting set
The Parks and Recreation Department is planning its final Onion Creek Metropolitan Park Master Plan public meeting, set for Thursday. The project team will present a final draft version of the master plan at the meeting. Onion Creek Metropolitan Park is 555 acres of parkland located in southeast Travis County, just south of Onion Creek. The proposed park is part of the area that was hit by the 2013 Halloween flood. The city-owned space is relatively flat and wooded, and sits undeveloped. The 180-acre Onion Creek Greenbelt is north of the 79-mile Onion Creek. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Widen Elementary School, 5605 Nuckols Crossing Road.
