Amplify Patterson Ice Cream Party

We had to reschedule our Amplify Austin Day wrap party but we are ON for Thursday afternoon, 4–6pm! Come celebrate our successful fundraising campaign with ice cream, face painting + fun at the playground. We will have new Friends of Patterson Park t-shirts to share with donors!

We are so grateful for the support of our neighbors, sponsors and Austin Parks Foundation, and looking forward to lots of great community events and park improvements in 2023!

Let’s Amplify Patterson Park!

It’s time to Amplify Patterson Park! The park has been so important to neighbors as a place to exercise, find peace, and socialize since it was established 80 years ago.

Friends of Patterson Park works to make it an even more welcoming place for all our East Austin neighbors by hosting community events like our annual easter egg hunt, national night out picnic and luminarias. We also plan park improvement projects, and have been proud to bring new playground equipment, benches, baskets and backboards, and more to neighborhood park.

Our 2023 Amplify Austin Day goal is to raise $7,000 in 2023 so that we can continue making improvements to our park and bringing our community together. We want Patterson Park to be where all our neighbors are welcome to play, exercise, and enjoy the outdoors. 

A huge THANKS to our Amplify sponsors Nature’s TreasuresFranklin BarbecueJade ConstructionMueller FoundationOddwood AlesMoontower Cider, and Cherrywood Neighborhood Association! We are also grateful for the support of Austin Parks Foundation, our fiscal sponsor, which will match donations up to $3500 dollar for dollar and make your gift stretch even further!

Friends of Patterson Park raises 246% of Amplify Austin Goal

CONGRATULATIONS!  Because of your generous donations, Friends of Patterson Park raised $7,425 during Amplify Austin. Thank you so much for your tremendous support and generosity during Amplify Austin Day 2021! We set a modest goal and blew past it. 

It’s been a hard year for so many, and we’ve come to depend on our public parks like never before. Together, the Friends of Patterson Park can bring updates and new amenities to our 80 year old neighborhood park so that people from around East Austin and the city can get the most out of this treasured green space.  We are truly grateful for your support and can’t wait to gather in person to celebrate with our park community this fall.   

We could not have done this without each and every single one of you!
