Welcome to Colony Park

The City of Austin is partnering with community members in and around the Colony Park neighborhood to plant the seeds of change for a more complete community in this part of Austin.  By working together, we can create an overall vision for 208 acres of publicly-owned Texas blackland prairie and 93 acres of parkland, transforming it into a community complete with vibrant opportunities to live, shop, work and play.

The project site, just north of Loyola Lane between Johnny Morris Road and Decker Lane, is adjacent to Overton Elementary School and the Turner-Roberts Recreation Center.  The land offers a unique opportunity to meet the unmet needs of the community and provide a catalyst for economic development and growth for the Colony Park area.

Your ideas and participation will ensure the Master Plan for the site reflects the vision of the community. Learn more about the project and subscribe to the mailing list.

Colony Park Master Plan

On December 11, 2014, the City of Austin approved and adopted as part of the Imagine Austin comprehensive Plan the Colony Park Master Plan and Regulating Plan.  The master plan was developed through a community involvement process and  established the existing conditions, vision, plan and implementation strategy. The Colony Park Master Plan is the basis for the Colony Park Regulating Plan, which establishes the design-based code development standards and zoning for the 208 acres.
