Friends and Neighbors:

The Barton Hills Neighborhood Association invites you to the 2nd Annual Spring Fling on Saturday, April 13th from 5PM to 7PM

Bring your picnic supper, cooler, blankets and the whole family. Join your friends and neighbors for a Picnic in the Park. We’ll be in the shade of the trees in the northwest corner of the Barton Hills Elementary School park ( at the corner of Barton Hills Drive and Briarcrest).

Our very own superstar, Jennifer Ellen Cook, and her glorious band will provide fantastic musical entertainment.

Wildfowl expert, Sallie Delahoussaye, is bringing the ever popular Birds of Prey. Get a close up look at these fascinating birds!!!!

We’ll have a grand time. A limited number of tables and chairs will be available for those who do not care to picnic on the ground.

Note: Alcoholic beverages are not permitted on school grounds.

We had a blast last year. This year’s picnic should be bigger and better than ever.

See you there!!!

Sunny Luther

Zilker Great Lawn

Post 2008, the Parks and Recreation Department created a new model for fencing to open a majority of the Great Lawn for public use during Trail of Lights season.  In prior years, fencing ran from the volleyball courts, along Stratford Road, along Barton Springs Road to Robert E. Lee and into the east side of the park.

The attached map shows the area of the Zilker Great Lawn required to be open (and will remain open) throughout the ENTIRE duration of the Trail of Lights nights for pedestrian access.  This new model was implemented to open a large portion of the Great Lawn throughout the holiday season.  There is full pedestrian access during normal park hours.

 

Area within the blue and red – closed until post event for Trail of Lights.
Area within the red blue and yellow, closed from Nov 19 until post event for Trail of Lights.
