July 4 Parade Photos

Chuck Ragland, driver of the classic Mustang pictured above, shared this photo of Parade Queens Melissa Hawthorne and Mary Ann Neely waving symbolic branches of ligustrum and nandina, two invasive species that our Greenbelt Guardians work so diligently to remove to allow native species to thrive in our nearby parkland.

Jennifer Ellen Cook sang the national anthem at the Celebration held on the Barton Hills Elementary playground after the Parade. Check out her pictures from the event here.


July 4 Parade and Celebration Schedule

Hi Neighbors,

It is almost time for our traditional Barton Hills 4th of July Parade and Celebration!

Almost time to decorate our bicycles, wagons, strollers, and pets and dress in our best red, white & blue finery and step out to parade down Barton Hills Drive from Barton Hills Market to Barton Hills Elementary School, or wave to our neighbors as they parade past. This is the time to see and be seen in the neighborhood.

A schedule of the parade and celebration is below. I hope to see you next Monday.

Greenbelt Fans,

We’ve got another big work day planned for Saturday, June 4, from 8:30 – Noon. We will be celebrating National Trails Day down on the greenbelt – giving it the TLC it deserves and needs, in exchange for the countless gifts it provides for us. We will have work teams at both Gus Fruh Trail (2642 Barton Hills Dr) and the Homedale Trail (2101 Homedale Dr). There will be some trail repair work, some rock work, invasives & weed removal, and trash pick-up. As always, we will provide tools and team leaders, and a yummy taco energy booster to get us started. Also, there will be a complementary lunch gathering and celebration afterwards at Zilker Park near Barton Springs afterwards, organized by Hill Country Conservancy.

This work day is being planned in conjunction with several other service groups, and the Austin Parks Foundation is providing the overall registration sign-up on their website. I would also appreciate it if you would rsvp to this email so we can do our detailed planning for our two trail heads.

Thanks so much for your continued interest and support of the greenbelt. We’re looking forward to another rewarding work day.
