For the first time, our city’s most famous park has a vision plan… but what’s in it? And what does it mean for the future of Zilker Park? Learn more with our latest guide.
This quote on community orgs supporting PARD comes from Jonathan Ogren of the Siglo Group, an environmental planning and ecological design group that conducted a natural resource inventory of the park to help kick off the vision planning process.
PS – PARD stands for the City of Austin Parks & Recreation Department.
Most of the quotes from this guide from original interviews conducted with Robin Rather (Zilker Neighborhood Association), Karen Blizzard (Zilker Collective Impact Working Group), Jonathan Ogren (Siglo Group), Joy Casnovsky (Austin Parks Foundation), & Michael Cannatti (Barton Springs Conservancy).
