A new playground for Austin


The Parks Committee of the Northwest Austin Civic Association (NWACA) has been working with the Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) to create an all-ages playground at Murchison Pool Park.  We’ve had an amazing plan put together by Charles Mabry of PARD.  Climbing structures, swings, spinners (both large and small), and free play balance logs will create a dynamic playground.

There will be shade structures help block some of that strong Texas sun.  A drinking fountain to keep everyone hydrated.  Tables with seats to accommodate anyone who might want to play a game or have a cup of coffee.  With a beautiful stone seating wall for children of all ages to enjoy.

And we need your help. While we work on getting some grants, we've set a goal of raising one-half the money needed to build the park.  That's about $165,000.  You can help us get there.
