Treviño skate/bike park plan takes shape

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 by Tai Moses

For those who don’t know, John Treviño was the first Latino to serve on the Austin City Council. His name now graces 330 acres of undeveloped parkland in East Austin that may soon boast a world-class skate/bike park as well. Park boosters are inviting community members – particularly designers, builders and riders – to come and walk through their proposal for a park that would include BMX and mountain bike trails, a pump track and a large skate park. Free tacos and coffee are part of the bargain. Saturday, Dec. 7, 10 a.m., 9501 FM 969. Correction: The bike/skate park is a proposal, not a finalized plan, as we reported in an earlier version of this Whisper. We regret the error.
