Located by Woodson Kindergarten Center we have garden plots that are available to rent. Plots are 15' X 20'. Water is available and the sprinklers are turned on as needed. What could be easier! You or your family till, rake, plant, and harvest your crops. Cost: $20 per plot. They will be ready when the weather permits.


Austin Park and Recreation Department expects our supervisors and coaches to set a good example for participants and fans to follow, exemplifying the highest moral and ethical behavior.  Please notify us, if you observe behavior contrary to this statement.

Our Goal is to provide each participant with a positive learning experience.  If your child has some specialized needs, please let us know.

The City of Austin has adopted a policy which prohibits the use of tobacco in all city facilities or at any playground/park location.  Please be considerate to others and abide by the policy.
