Join us for Picnic in the Park

We are very excited to announce Picnic in the Park on April 14th from 3-5 p.m at our neighborhood park on the campus of Barton Hills Elementary School.

This is an informal gathering for all of the neighborhood. Super kid friendly and hoping for excellent weather, we will hear the Barton Hills School Choir, see old friends and meet new ones.

We are particularly interested in seeing kids and parents who would typically be at the July 4th parade attend our Party in the Park because we want to do a little planning for the parade while we are all mingling. But do not fret, there will be no formal announcements, no loud speakers or amps, just folks from the ‘hood enjoying springtime. We look forward to seeing you there!


March 2 Greenbelt Guardians Workday

Hi neighbors,

The Austin Parks Foundation’s spring It’s My Park Day is coming up fast – Saturday, March 2.  We’ll be working at the Barton Creek Greenbelt – Gus Fruh access (2642 Barton Hills Drive) from 9:00 until 1:00.  We’ll be resurfacing the entire switchback entry trail with decomposed granite and StaLok.  We’d planned to do this work last fall, but unfortunately our supplier didn’t deliver the materials as promised and we had to reschedule the work.  It’s a big job and we’ll need all the help we can get!  We’ll have some other tasks available (invasives removal, trash pickup, etc.) for those who can’t do trail repair, but our focus will be on getting the trail work done.

Registration is already open – please go to APF’s website here to sign up for our project as soon as you can. You can also email stan@sostrum.com if you have any questions or problems with online registration.

As usual, we’ll have breakfast tacos for everyone and water to refill your bottles. Kids are welcome, but younger ones will need to bring a parent along with them, and anyone under 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign the waiver.  We’ll provide the team leaders and tools needed for all of the work.  Please bring a water bottle, a pair of work gloves (if you have them), and wear closed-toe shoes.  Long pants and long sleeves will also help to protect against poison ivy.

We’re looking forward to beautiful weather and another good workday and we hope that lots of you can join us!

Stan Ostrum and Glee Ingram
