Earth Day at Zilker Park!
Frontier Associates staff enjoyed another Volunteer Day event this past weekend with the Austin Parks Foundation (APF), celebrating Earth Day by adding mulch around trees at Austin’s Zilker Park. This year marks Zilker Park’s centennial. For 100 years, Austin locals and visitors alike have enjoyed the beautiful 350 acres of park land between the Colorado River and Barton Creek. With towering shade trees, green grass for picnics, and the cool waters of Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Park is truly the crown jewel of the Austin parks system.
Through the work of APF, the Austin Parks & Recreation Department, and the time and resources contributed by caring volunteers, Zilker Park will continue to thrive for 100 more years to be enjoyed by many generations to come.
