We received this announcement from the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department today, regarding upcoming improvements to Bull Creek District Park. Please come and give them your ideas.
The Austin Parks and Recreation Department will kick off the Bull Creek District Park planning process on September 10, 2016. Parks and Recreation Department staff will conduct outreach and a park user survey in Bull Creek District Park from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM. The purpose of the outreach and survey is to raise awareness about the master planning process, and collect feedback from park users regarding desired park improvements and primary concerns. The community is encouraged to attend the outreach event, engage in conversation with the project team, and enjoy the park on a Saturday.

Bull Creek District Park is unique because Bull Creek traverses the property providing 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.
The Parks and Recreation Department will develop a park master plan with funding provided under the Department’s capital budget. The overall budget for this project is $750,000 for plan development, design, permitting, and construction of the first phase of improvements.
