Parque Zaragoza ribbon-cutting
Wednesday, January 16, 2019 by Tai Moses
The Parks and Recreation Department and the Austin Parks Foundation invite the community to attend the Parque Zaragoza ribbon-cutting to celebrate the new playground and improvements to the baseball fields, which now boast new safety netting and batting cages. The event will take place on Saturday, Jan. 19, at 10 a.m. at Parque Zaragoza Park, 2608 Gonzales St. The 15-acre park is named for General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin, who was credited with a notable victory over French troops during the Battle of Puebla in 1862. The project was funded by Parks and Rec and with grants from Austin Parks Foundation and St. David’s Foundation.
