Planning for Ricky G improvements have been in the works for over two years. Yesterday, the City sent out the notification below; our Parks Committee will get more details from the project manager and share them.
BCNA Parks Committee
Ricky Guerrero Neighborhood Park will be closing for renovations beginning Tuesday, January 22, 2019. The park areas containing the restroom facility, play equipment, picnic tables and grills will be closed during the renovation period. When completed, Ricky Guerrero Neighborhood Park will have new ADA compliant sidewalks, picnic tables and grills, benches, rain gardens, infrastructure for drainage control, and an improved restroom facility compliant with current ADA standards. Improvements to the playgrounds will also include a pre-school play structure which will provide a more accessible, enjoyable and inclusive play area for the community. The renovations at Ricky Guerrero Neighborhood Park are anticipated to be completed by early summer 2019.
It’s My Park Day celebration in the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt
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.
A thanks to Matt Coldwell for our new WBCGB sign ! View HERE
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

We did a second sweep of the greenbelt today, this time along the railroad tracks, collecting a out 30 bags of trash, plus lots of cardboard a few larger items and a few bags of recyclables.
Many thanks to Clay, Dannie, Kate, Matt, Nancy, Ronnie (and children), Sophie and Thom who each spent about two hours collecting and hauling stuff. We were too tired to pick up trash in the creek bed, so on your next walk, please take a bag and collect some. View attachments on the web for some before and after pictures HERE
Also a big Thank You to Sally who did not participate in the party at N Dawson Park but knew Chico (Mark McCollough) and volunteered to clean up and to Cheryl, from the Parks Committee, who beat her to it. Good neighbors all around. Ingrid
