Butler Shores Exercise Equipment Enhancement

The Trail Conservancy has partnered with the Austin Parks & Recreation Department (PARD) to replace and enhance the existing exercise equipment that sits adjacent to the Trail near the PARD headquarters on West Riverside Drive.  This project will replace existing items on the site including the exercise equipment, seating, and drinking fountain and will increase fitness opportunities in the area.

The Trail Conservancy worked with Oro Design Group to develop the schematic design for this space. The next phase of the project includes permitting and final documentation, and construction is anticipated to begin in fall/winter 2022.
