Park seeks new name
Thursday, March 31, 2022 by Tai Moses
The Parks and Recreation Department is asking the community to weigh in on a proposed name change for Pan American Neighborhood Park. The park’s new name, if all are in favor, would be Tony Castillo Pan American Neighborhood Park. Augustine “Tony” Castillo was a longtime East Austin coach who “served the community at Pan Am Park for 65 years,” according to a news release from the parks department. Community members will have a chance to learn more about Castillo and the renaming process at two upcoming meetings. Register for a virtual meeting on Thursday, April 28, at 7 p.m. or attend an in-person meeting on Saturday, April 30, at 10:30 a.m., at A.B. Cantu Pan American Recreation Center, 2100 E. Third St. You may also leave input on a community survey (in Spanish) now through June 4.
