Vote to improve your favorite park

Monday, April 6, 2015 by Mark Richardson

As part of Earth Month, the national Parks Build Community initiative is looking to award a $20,000 grant to improve an Austin park, and Austinites get to choose which one. The event is sponsored by Disney, ABC Television Group, ESPN and the National Recreation and Park Association. Through April 30, Austin residents will have the opportunity to vote to give one of three park projects a chance to receive the $20,000 for improvements. The projects are the Battle Bend Park Basketball Court Renovation, the House Among the Trees at Zilker Park and the Nature Play at Dove Springs District Park. By going here, park supporters can vote daily for their favorite project. The one with the most votes at the end of April gets the grant.
