For the past three years, we’ve sub-leased office space from another non-profit, the Trust for Public Land (TPL) at 816 Congress Avenue. The view from our 16th floor office is awesome, but the lease is up and our friends at TPL are moving to a much smaller office south of Lady Bird Lake.
So, thanks to help from our friends at the City Parks and Recreation Dept, we are moving to an office at the Austin Recreation Center at 1301 Shoal Creek Blvd effective Tuesday, January 17th. This is right next door to House Field as well as the new Skate/BMX Park. The center has parking so if you need to visit us, that will be easier than coming to our current offices downtown. We’re finalizing documents and plans to move and have re-painted the space this week and have new carpet coming next week. We’re paying for these improvements as part of the agreement with the city.
Our new mailing address is:
Austin Parks Foundation
P.O. Box 300369
Austin, TX 78703-0007
Moving will most likely take place next Thursday Jan 12th at night and it will be a few days before we have everything put back together. So, count on us being up and running in our new location on Tuesday, Jan 17th.
