Walk along Downtown streets enhanced by small parks, plazas, and public spaces. This tour will highlight how parks and transportation planning can come together to influence the shape of a place and the traffic flow, economy, and civic culture of a community. We will visit several parks around downtown Austin and discuss the history of each, their development and current uses.
