With funding provided from the 2012 General Obligation Bond, the Parks and Recreation Department is creating a Park Master Plan for Bull Creek District Park, which is located in northwest Austin on the banks of Bull Creek.
Bull Creek District Park Proposed Master Plan
Bull Creek District Park is a unique park since Bull Creek traverses through it and provides a popular swimming recreational activity for the community. The park also has trails that connect to a larger trail system in Bull Creek Greenbelt, which are popular with hikers and dog owners. The 48 acre district park was acquired in 1971 with federal funding and has three parking areas, restrooms, water fountain, picnic tables, and a sand volleyball court. The Parks and Recreation Department will develop a park master plan with 2012 General Obligation Bond funding. The overall budget for this project is $750,000 for plan development, design, permitting, and construction.
Public input is an important element of the master planning process and the Parks and Recreation Department is interested in working with the public in order to assist in defining what recreational uses are appropriate and desired while balancing the existing constraints of the park.

The project goal is to create a Park Master Plan based on public input that will identify appropriate recreational uses. The master plan will then guide the design phase and construction phase for future park renovations and improvements. The Park Master Planning phase has started and will conclude in the fall of 2016, followed by the design, permitting and construction phase.
