Explore South Austin’s eclectic Bouldin Creek neighborhood with this year’s Historic Homes Tour!
From Ingrid Weigand with the BCNA Parks Department:
We had a wonderful Trail Opening Celebration in the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt last Saturday. Attendees included Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo, representatives from the Austin Parks and Recreation Department and Austin Watershed Protection as well as the Austin Parks Foundation and Bouldin and Zilker neighbors.
You can view photos using link below.
The trails will only stay open if they are used consistently, so please go explore! While you are out there, feel free to pull out ragweed at the edge of the paths.
Thanks to everyone who helped get the trails ready and those who attended.
Ours is truly a great neighborhood.

26th Annual Creek Cleaning was held March 4, 2017
in conjunction with the Austin Park Foundation’s
15th annual “It’s My Park Day” celebration.
We had one of our most successful creek cleanings in years this last Saturday.
Thank you to everyone who participated! Also, a big thank you to Fair Bean Coffee whose donation got us started in the morning, as well as breakfast bars from Austin Parks Foundation/ Wheatsville Coop and finished with El Mercado’s tacos and Lucy’s fried chicken – our reward after the work was done.
About 80 people, neighbors and community volunteers, met at 8:30 am just as the rain was letting up. Together, we pulled over 200 bags of trash plus a few mattresses, card board boxes, etc., out of the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt, Ricky Guerrero Park and Nicholas Dawson Park. We finished about 30 minutes before the rain started up again for good.
This is the cleanest our parks have been in a while and we would like to keep it that way. A suggestion – when you go for a walk in any of our green spaces, take a small bag and collect just a few pieces of trash along the way. It does not sound like much, but it really, really helps.
Note: We are planning a Trail Completion Celebration in a few weeks.
