The Overlook

The Overlook is a small section in the northwest corner of West Austin Park, bordering Maufrais St. At one time it was a tennis court, but it fell in to disrepair and was removed. In 2020, the Friends of West Austin Park actively starting planning to transform this area into a peaceful, adult-centric area of the park focusing on promoting chance interactions among neighbors. We hired TBG, a well known landscape architecture firm to redefine the space. The Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) supported the effort and granted approval to the design which follows the master plan for the park adopted in 2013. Not it's time to make it happen. Fundraising is underway and we hope to kick off construction in 2022!

A place to put down the phone and interact with other humans...

A place to read, relax and take in park and skyline views...

Or enjoy a friendly game of Petanque with neighbors.
