The Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) will host two community meetings to present concepts for the Bull Creek Master Plan. The Plan 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.
To date, PARD has conducted an online survey as well as in-person outreach. Based on the survey results, the Department created concepts for park improvements. The concepts and survey results will be presented to the public for review and comment at two community meetings. The meetings will allow the public an opportunity to provide their 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.
