The Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) continues the master planning process for John Treviño Jr. Metropolitan Park at Morrison Ranch with the presentation of the preliminary concept design ideas.
A community open house will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday August 24th at Barbara Jordan Elementary School. The master planning team will share concept options for John Treviño Jr. Metropolitan Park, which have been developed based on community input from previous gatherings in June and July, as well as feedback provided via Speakup Austin. The meeting will be in an open-house format, with a brief presentation of the concept designs at 10:30 a.m., hands-on activities for kids and adults to develop ideas for the park, and opportunities for community members to ask questions and share their thoughts with the team.
The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department is in the master planning process for the John Treviño Jr. Metropolitan Park. The land for the park – located along the Colorado River between highways 183 and 130 – was acquired by the Austin Parks and Recreation Department in 2003. The site represents an opportunity to open 330 acres of new parkland, including river access, to the residents of Austin.
