Downtown Park User Study
The Downtown Austin Alliance is looking for volunteers to help with a survey of downtown park users during the months of June, July and August 2011.
The focus of the study will be downtown Austin’s historic Republic Square, Brush Square and Old Bakery. Volunteers will count the number of park users and conduct short interviews. Park observation sessions are in 30-minute intervals, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday of the specified weeks. Volunteers can sign up for as little at 90 minutes (3 observations) per month and as much as 12 hours per month. Volunteers can even choose to buddy up, one person can count the users and the other can conduct interviews. Please feel free to sign up for as many shifts as you would like. The complete schedule is below. In order to ensure consistency in the study methodology, we are asking that volunteers attend a 1-hour mandatory training session on either Wednesday June 15 or Thursday June 16.
You can choose to observe one or several of the following downtown parks:
Republic Square: between 4th and 5th and Guadalupe and San Antonio Streets
Brush Square: between 4th and 5th and Trinity and Neches Streets
Old Bakery Park: at 10th and Congress Avenue
