It’s My Park Day celebration in the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt

Neighbors,

Thank you to everyone who attended the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt Open House on Saturday, November 3. We had a very good turn out – about 40 people, including several Zilker residents, explored the trails, looked at the new signage and got updates on future plans to improve the Post Oak Street Trailhead.

Take a look for yourself: https://flic.kr/s/aHskHKo4vi

Many thanks to those of you who helped clear the trails and pick up trash before the event and especially the BCNA Parks Committee members who created and installed our temporary signage.

The trails on the greenbelt will only stay open and weed-free if they are used – so take yourselves, your kids and your (leashed, please) pets for a walk, look for wildlife & native plants and enjoy this marvelous green space in the middle of our neighborhood

If you see anything that needs attention, please e-mails parkscommittee@bouldincreek.org

Thanks,

Ingrid Weigand

It’s My Park Day November 3, 2018

Dear Neighbors,
We would like to invite you to an It’s My Park Day celebration in the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt on November 3, from 9 am to 11 am.

This year, instead of asking you to help us collect trash and widen trails (all completed recently, thanks to Clay, Marie, Matt, Ronnie and Thom!), we want to show off this wonderful urban green space. We’ll give tours of the trails, explain the natural spring at the 1200 South 6th Street entrance, discuss plans for improving the Post Oak trail-head and provide general information about the neighborhood association, including ways you can get involved.
Refreshments will be served.

What: West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt Open House
When: Saturday, November 3, 9 am to 11 am
Where: 1200 South 6th Street

If you want to receive a nifty It’s My Park Day shirt from the Austin Parks Foundation,

A little Austin history from John T. Davis.

“How The 1970s Defined Austin”
A cool article about Austin.
By John T. Davis
Published: August 30, 2018 Austin Monthly

Longtime Austinites are particularly fond of their former sleepy college town’s history, and no decade represents a happier time—the happiest, some would say—than the freewheeling, youth-driven ’70s. Austin has always been a progressive city, but this decade formed the bedrock for where we are today. We explain why.
