Neighborhood party at Patterson Park

Patterson Park is where five neighborhoods come together to play, exercise, and celebrate with family and friends. It brings together Cherrywood, Wilshire Wood/Delwood 1, Schieffer-Willowbrook, Delwood 2 and Mueller, and attracts visitors from all over East Austin for birthday parties, pickup soccer and basketball games, family celebrations,  games of frisbee and fetch, and a variety of community events.

These include an end-of-year luminaria party, Halloween pumpkin carving parties, Easter egg hunt, several neighborhood pizza parties, and more.

Friends of Patterson Park (FoPP) has been working to beautify and improve the park since 2002. Some of our initiatives include the planting of dozens of trees over several different plantings; playground improvements; the creation of and improvements to a perimeter trail; regular mulching of trees; painting of picnic tables; installation of pool house mosaic, skateboard halfpipe, shade over the baby pool, Purple Martin nesting site; and the design and initiation of a community garden with a grant from Austin Parks Foundation.
