Monday, July 1, 2019 by Tai Moses

The process for the Austin Parks and Recreation Department’s Our Parks, Our Future long-range planning initiative has garnered thousands of ideas from the community, including more community gardens, new signage and expanding linear parks. All of the best ideas are going into the draft plan that will help guide the development of Austin’s parks over the next 10 years. If you want to hear what’s in the plan and offer your feedback on it, attend one of the meetings scheduled for late July or one of the pop-up events that will be announced at a later date. Kim McKnight, project lead for the planning process, said, “We’ve had a great response from the community and we are excited to share the plan we have developed to guide Austin’s park system into the future.” July 25, 4-8 p.m. at Millennium Youth Entertainment Complex, 1156 Hargrave St.; or July 27, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at Zilker Botanical Garden, 2220 Barton Springs Road.
