CITY OF AUSTIN PARKS ASSESSMENT

Studio Balcones has been selected to serve as the subconsultant for a citywide parks assessment project as part of the Long Range Plan. The planning efforts begin with an extensive inventory of park conditions and amenities. WRT Design is conducting an analysis of trends in demographics, industry standards, and engagement. Studio Balcones is currently assessing park property while the public has been simultaneously invited to provide valuable input that will affect the future of the Austin parks system. This assessment will be developed in close coordination with PARD’s Strategic Plan and the city’s Imagine Austin plan.

This is part of a long term effort to guide the development and growth of Austin’s park system. This Long Range Plan is themed Our Parks, Our Future 2018-2028 and is funded in part through contributions from the Austin Parks Foundation.
