Due to inclement weather on March 5, the Zilker Kite Festival was rescheduled for March 12.

Hi Neighbors,

The Zilker Kite Festival is in one week on March 5th starting at 10am going until 5pm. I have attached all the information provided by the Austin Parks Department.

Barton Springs Rd will be closed starting at 7am that Sunday March 5th from Sterzing to the Mopac access Rd. See attached map.

Neighborhood no parking will be similar to ACL festival. Namely one side of the street will be no parking from Hollow Creek to the southern Deerfoot Trail. See attached map.

Please dial 311 for any issues or complaints related to the event, whether sound or parking related.

The Moss Fest will be holding a children’s concert during the kite festival from 10am to approximately 1:30pm at Lou Neff point which is North East corner of the park (where Blues on the Green and the main ACL stage is located). The Barton Hills Elementary Choir will be performing at 10am.

This is one of my favorite Austin festivals so hopefully we have a nice sunny day and a strong wind so all the kites will be airborne!

Hope to see you down there!

Greenbelt Guardians Workday March 4

As part of the Austin Parks Foundation’s 15th annual Spring It’s My Park Day event, we will be working at the Homedale Access, located behind Barton Hills Elementary School, on Saturday March 4th from 9:00 to Noon.

Volunteers will be weeding and repairing portions of the stone edging on the entry trail, repairing erosion damage on a small section of the entry trail, replacing a section of wood railing, camouflaging some graffiti, and continuing the work of constructing stone underpinning walls to support the wood crossover bridge along the trail. We will also be doing some terracing and stepping stone work near the trail approach to the large stone flats adjacent to Barton creek. And there is always plenty of trash to pick up after the crowds that assemble to enjoy the flowing creek water.

If you’re available to work with us on that day, please go to the APF GetPulse website and register online for our project here.

There will be tasks appropriate for a range of ages and skill sets. We provide team leaders and tools needed for all of the tasks. Volunteers are advised to bring a water bottle and wear long pants and long sleeves and closed-toe shoes.

We’re looking forward to a good workday on March 4th and hoping that you can join us!
