News & Events at Patterson Park, February 2020
Happy New Year Friends of Patterson Park! It’s been a sleepy winter at the park but things are about to go into hyperdrive for spring.
* An annual report on our 2019 activities is coming soon. Highlights of the year include 100K in grant funded improvement projects, 350 volunteer hours mulching and planting trees, and 8 community events that brought 600+ neighbors to the park.
* Amplify Austin is coming up March 4-5, and this year the Austin Park Foundation has generously offered a 100% match of everything that we raise. We’d love your support to keep up our work in 2020!
