This initial conceptual design plan embodies the spirit of imaginative play and celebrates Ausitn's love of its natural outdoor environments.  The design is based on several key objectives, including extension of play, activities for all ages and being inclusive to all, as well as the primary concerns and desires voiced in the first public engagement meeting and the public survey, which included:

  • Shade is essential
  • Experiential play is a must
  • Provide swings
  • Provide berm slides
  • Use materials reflecting Austin's natural environment
  • Create a cultural park
  • Balance natural and synthetic materials
  • Create a visually striking park

We are continuing to refine the garden design, based on comments from the second public engagement meeting, as well as the survey, as this project's design phase continues.  Please review the Conceptual Plan, and tell us your thoughts!
