Walsh Boat Landing to close for improvements

Monday, August 12, 2019 by Tai Moses

Starting in mid-September, the Parks & Recreation Department will be closing Walsh Boat Landing at 1600 Scenic Drive in order to begin planned improvements to the facility. Improvements will include making upgrades so the facility and the parking area comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and restoring the bulkhead with more sustainable materials in order to conform to city lakefront codes on shoreline erosion. The parks department asks that residents find other access points to Lake Austin during the project, which is expected to take about six months to complete, weather permitting.
