Community Meeting to be Held Saturday, February 4

Friends of Patterson Park would like to invite the neighbors from Cherrywood, Delwood 2, Mueller, Schieffer-Willowbrook, and Wilshire Wood to an open community meeting to discuss plans at the park for 2017.

Friends of Patterson Park Community Meeting
Saturday, February 4, 10-11:30 a.m.
Servant Church, 1605 E. 38 1/2 St., Austin, TX 78722

The main topics are:

1) Dance of the Cosmos, Jennifer Chenoweth’s kinetic scultpure, will be moving to the park later this year. This is our opportunity to ask the artist anything and everything we want to know about the piece, her work, and how it will fit into Patterson Park.

2) Fundraising priorities for park improvements. The results of the recently completed survey of community priorities indicated people’s top priorities are improvements to the playscape, pool, bathroom, trails, amenitites. But what’s practical and within reach? We’d like to determine a goal for fundraising during Amplify Austin in March. Brian Block, PARD’s liason for Adopt-A-Park groups, will be there to help us work through the options.

Childcare will be provided, so please feel free to bring your families. A babysitter will supervise an animated movie and we’ll have donuts and hot chocolate.
