The Austin Parks and Recreation Department is looking for public input in creating the Bull Creek District Park Master Plan, which will serve as a guide for future park renovations and development. The project’s $750,000 budget comes from the City of Austin’s 2012 General Obligation Bond. Funding will be allocated for park development, design, permitting, and the first phase of construction.
Up to now, PARD has used an online survey and in-person outreach to get public feedback to the plan. Using those survey results, the Department created concepts for park improvements. Those ideas and survey results will be presented to the public for review and comment at two upcoming community meetings, where the public will have an opportunity to provide ideas and preferences using maps.
In addition to PARD, staff from partner departments, including Watershed Protection and Austin Resource Recovery, will be available to answer questions.
Bull Creek District Park’s unique property provides water-oriented recreational activities. The park’s trails connect to a larger trail system in the Bull Creek Greenbelt, which are popular with hikers and dog owners. The 48-acre District Park was acquired in 1971 with federal funding and has three parking areas, restrooms, water fountain, picnic tables, and a sand volleyball court.
