Park Rangers are ambassadors for Austin's park system that promote responsible recreation, cultivate stewardship, and conserve parks' cultural and natural resources for the benefit of our entire community.


The City of Austin Park Ranger program was created to provide educational services, safety, and security in Austin’s parks and recreational facilities. Equally important is our aim to protect and foster stewardship of the natural world. To accomplish this, the park rangers have been trained with a focus on emergency medical response, education, and public safety.
