  • Trust for Public Land Donates Land to Expand Greenbelt

    Trust for Public Land recently donated 14 acres of property to the City of Austin to expand the Barton Creek Greenbelt, a heavily wooded natural area with miles of hike-and-bike trails that attracts local hikers, bikers, runners and rock climbers.

    Austin City Council Member Randi Shade, Austin Parks and Recreation (PARD) Director Sara L. Hensley, TPL Advisory Chair Larry Eisenberg, and 3M Government and Community Affairs Manager Russell Bridges commemorated the donation at an event today on a portion of the greenbelt that overlooks the new parkland.
