Celebrating Community in East Riverside

January Newsletter

Friends of Riverside ATX 2019 Plans

Hi members and friends! 2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year for our East Riverside neighborhood. With the proposed addition of the Riverside Pop-Up Arts District on Pleasant Valley, we have an opportunity to lead the conversation on how to support a thriving art community in the face of rising costs and the displacement that goes along with rapid growth. New improvements and additions are being made to Roy Guerrero Park including the extension of Country Club Creek Trail and the construction of a new Mountain Bike Trail. We are also expanding the vegetable gardens at The Hill, A Second Campus Of The Episcopal Church Of The Good Shepherd, and will continue to help improve connectivity in our neighborhood.

All these efforts would not be possible without dedicated volunteers whose passion for community pushes them on. If any of these projects sound interesting to you, please contact us and we can help you get involved. 

We're Recruiting!
Are you interested in becoming a leader in our community? We have secured a few board spots already, but it's never too late to get involved. If you are interested in taking a role within the organization, we would love for you to step in! Please email us to learn more.
Share Your Vision for the Future of Austin's Parks 
The Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) released an online survey to receive feedback on every aspect of the Austin Parks and Recreation System, from your local pocket or neighborhood park to the big metro parks and all of the programs in between. Take the  “Our Parks, Our Future” Online Survey before Sunday, January 27th!
