In The Parks

The In The Parks video series connects Austinites to the places they love and the people who define our quality recreational, cultural, and outdoor experiences. 

PARD, in partnership with ATXN, the City’s cable TV channel, features personal stories about the community who uses our green spaces, facilities, and services. 

Through these videos, we explore people and places that make Austin’s parks system one of a kind. Watch the full playlist
