An attractive and colorful community flower garden, located just off the back porch, is a wonderful setting for conversations and outdoor games.

The SASAC is a $2.1 million project approved by voters in the 1992 bond election built on land donated to the City of Austin. The project was completed in 1995 and named after the vibrant and activity community in which it resides.
