Ice Cream Party to Kick Off Amplify Austin and Celebrate Updates

Our neighborhood park is getting a major makeover this week, and we want to celebrate! There were new picnic tables installed at the main pavilion last Friday, and this week PARD is rebuilding the small pavilion by the basketball court, and installing new tables and trash cans both there and at the community garden. That’s a lot of updates for our beloved park, and we are enormously grateful to the Austin Parks and Recreation Department and Austin Parks Foundation for all they’ve done. Meet us at the pavilion for ice cream on Thursday, March 2, 4:30-6:30 p.m. to celebrate!

We’ll also be kicking off our Amplify Patterson Park campaign on Thursday, since Amplify Austin starts at 6 p.m. We have big plans for 2017 and hope you’ll help us make them a reality! Read more about it and schedule your donation now!

We are so grateful for the support of our Amplify Business Sponsors: Cynthia Soliz Law, Erin Tassoulas Design + Build, Nicole Cooper with Horizon Realty, Thunderbird Coffee and Franklin Barbecue! They will each be matching $250 in donations during our fundraising campaign.

Friends of Patterson Park receives Austin Parks Foundation Grant to Update Pavilion Picnic Tables

Friends of Patterson Park is pleased to announce that we have received a $4,700 grant from the Austin Parks Foundation to update the picnic tables at our pavilion. The grant is part of a project to refresh the pavilion area, which is the central gathering place at our park.  In addition to new picnic tables, the outdated trash bins will be replaced by the Austin Parks and Recreation Department, and FoPP will install a second bike rack. The installation of the new furnishings will take place this spring. Our pavilion will have a whole new look for all the celebrations held there in the future, and we are grateful for the support of our wonderful partners!
