Austin Parks and Recreation
Festival Beach Community Garden is the first community garden to be built on City of Austin park land as part of the City’s new initiative to encourage the use of City land for community gardens. We serve as a template and are leading the way for more gardens in the future.
For more information about the Community Gardens on Parkland program, visit http://www.ci.austin.tx.us/parks/communitygardens.htm
Festival Beach Community Garden was built in part through a generous grant from Austin Parks Foundation, as part of an initiative to improve neighborhood parks.
It takes a community to grow a garden!
Many thanks to the individuals and businesses who have supported our efforts through their kind donations.
