Patterson Neighborhood Park Plan

Cross-posted from the Flea newsletter

Friends of Patterson Park has developed a Neighborhood Park Plan that is intended to guide our work in the coming years. It is considered a “dream plan,” the vision for improvements to the park not just now, but 10 and 20 years from now. The plan is based on the 2016 Survey of Community Priorities for Patterson Park and community meetings held in June and September 2017. It was developed using guidelines from the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department. This fall the plan will be presented to the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department, the Cherrywood, Delwood 2, Mueller, Schieffer Willowbrook and Wilshire Wood/Delwood 1 Neighborhood Associations for approval, as well as to the Upper Boggy Creek Neighborhood Contact Team.
