PARD lifts burn restrictions

Tuesday, September 29, 2020 by Tai Moses

All that cool wet stuff that was recently falling from the sky has done its job and moistened the fuel – aka the brushy vegetation that feeds wildfires – in city parks and greenbelts. In response, Austin’s parks department has lifted the burn restrictions that were in place. You are now free to grill burgers or toast s’mores over a fire ring – in designated picnic areas only, of course.
