Waller Creek: A Revitalizing Downtown Corridor (Friday)

Waller Creek: A Revitalizing Downtown Corridor (Friday)

Join the Waller Creek Conservancy and City of Austin representatives on this walking tour, of this creekside corridor on the east side of Downtown along I-35. Currently a sadly neglected natural feature, Waller Creek is at the center of plans for the largest urban creek corridor revitalization in the nation, to feature a chain of parks connected by urban trails for biking and walking. The vision for the Waller Creek Corridor includes world-class public spaces, and new transportation connectivity both east-west and north-south, with major redevelopment along both sides.

Led by:
John Rigdon, Waller Creek Conservancy, Project Manager
Meredith Bossin, Waller Creek Conservancy, Director of Programs
Tonya Swartzendruber, COA, Urban Design Principal Planner
