July 4 - US Birthday Party in the Park
Join the Friends of West Austin Park and the Old West Austin Neighborhood Association (OWANA) as we celebrate our nation's 246th birthday! Activities are planned for kids and adults alike during the day. In the evening, bring a chair, beverage and a friends to watch the fireworks from the future site of the Overlook project in the NW corner of the park.
November 5 - It's My Park Day
Enjoying getting your hands dirty? Two Saturdays each year - spring and fall - the Friends of West Austin Park (FOWAP) coordinates a park maintenance day. Neighbors come together to spread mulch in various areas of the park, maintain the gardens near the pool, and other park activities. IMPD events are held on a Saturday from 9AM to 12PM and we generally have 25-40 neighbors show up. It's a lot of fun and a great way to meet your neighbors while giving back to your park. Plus, you'll get a free T-shirt if you register! We supply the tools - you bring muscle and work gloves!
