Part of the Neighborhood Park Plan series of posts.
One of the community priorities for Patterson Park identified in the 2016 survey conducted by FoPP was the addition of landscaping and tree plantings. Austin Parks Foundation and TreeFolks, in partnership with the Urban Forestry Division at PARD, are proposing a project with the Friends of Patterson Park to plant two small groves of trees at the park for the purpose of increasing the tree species diversity and add more beauty and health to the park. Urban Forestry can approve this project if the neighborhood members can commit to watering and maintaining the trees for two years while they get established.
All materials costs, education and information resources, tool supply and organizing the tree planting will be provided by Austin Parks Foundation and TreeFolks; supplemental watering, tree mulching and other maintenance will be the responsibility of the Friends of Patterson Park.
