Walsh Boat Landing, 1600 Scenic Drive, Austin, TX 78703 will be closed to the public beginning in mid-September. The purpose of the closure is to begin construction of improvements to the Parks & Recreation facility.
Improvements will include restoration of existing bulkhead with more durable and sustainable materials to meet current City of Austin lake front codes addressing shoreline erosion. In addition, construction will improve pedestrian circulation and bring parking to comply with the current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The project timeline and closure is anticipated for 180 calendar days. Additional weather delays may contribute to a longer duration of closure.
The Parks & Recreation Department asks that facility users of Walsh Boat Landing access Lake Austin at and through other locations.
