Westcreek Greenway & Westcreek Pocket Park

Brush Country Trailhead Landscaping Project – Spring 2017

We’ve partnered with Austin Texas Xeriscapes (ATX) to improve the “devil strip”.  Here is the completed xeriscaping project.  ATX has landscaped several yards in the neighborhood, including doing drainage improvements, and you’ve likely noticed the dog poop bag station he installed for a Summerset neighbor. John w/ ATX Xeriscaping is doing this pro-bono project for our neighborhood and will be providing a dog poop station near the trailhead so dog walkers will be encouraged to scoop the poop. Just remember  when you use the complimentary poop bags, that you take them with you and dispose of them in a trashcan at home.

Trail/Nature Area Improvements – Westcreek Greenway

GREAT NEWS! Spring 2017

Our Neighborhood Partnering Program cost-share grant application has been approved!! We’ve got lots of great plans over the next couple of years for the Westcreek Greenway. Keep tuned for upcoming meetings and volunteer opportunities. We have partnered with Small MS Green Tech Program to be involved with this!  A bridge over the low water crossing behind the Brush Country Trailhead is also in the design.

This project will improve the nature and trail area (both beautification and safety improvements) behind Summerset Trail and Cana Cove. Our efforts will include Small Middle School’s Green Tech Program students.

Here is a PDF of our final design renderings.

Pocket Park

Did you know that the Westcreek Neighborhood Association worked with the City of Austin & got Westcreek its very own designated pocket park

Map here:  Westcreek Drive dead-end behind Patton Elementary, called the Westcreek Greenway

We celebrated It’s My Park Day on Saturday, March 7

Neighbors recently got together to clean up this area and prep it for future development.

Here’s a big shout-out to the awesome Westcreek volunteers who made It’s My Park a huge success! We removed an amazing amount of trash/construction debris and invasive Ligustrum this morning. Big thanks to the 13 awesome neighbors for showing up and working hard. We also discussed lots of ideas for the pocket park.

Thanks Austin Parks Foundation and all their sponsors for putting together this city-wide event every year!

What is next?

We will work with the Parks & Recreation Department to pursue funding & eventual development of our neighborhood park. Please email board@westcreekna.org to get involved…every effort counts…no matter how small.
