Today’s vote by the Austin City Council marks a significant milestone for the Waller Creek Conservancy and the development of Waller Creek Park. The ambitious project, which stretches from Lady Bird Lake to 15th Street, includes 35 acres of new and redeveloped parkland, more than three miles of pedestrian and bicycle trails, and the ecological restoration of lower Waller Creek.
Many of you have asked how you can help advance our mission to build a chain of parks on Waller Creek, and we could not be more grateful for your ongoing support. Now the time has come when we are counting on you. Join us on May 24 and show your support!
In a recent op-ed co-authored by Mayor Adler, Mayor Pro Tem Tovo, Council Member Houston and Council Member Renteria, the Waller Creek project was lauded as "once in a generation opportunity" for Austin to create parks and green space that will serve the entire community.

Starting this year, Waller Creek Conservancy is hosting quarterly community conversations on topics relevant to our future parks. In February, we kicked off this engagement series by asking our community about your preferences for food in Waller Creek Parks. After hosting two public meetings on Feb. 22 and 24, and an online survey during the month of March, we've tallied up what we heard. View the full feedback report now.
