Lakeshore Park Sponsorship Information


The plan for this space is the next phase in our Southeast Shore Park and Trail Masterplan.

Phase 1 of Lakeshore Park will include an alleé of Mexican Sycamore trees, transitioning Trail users from the entirely manmade Boardwalk back into a more park-like Trail experience. These graceful trees will provide much-needed shade for the sunny plazas as well as the new exercise equipment that will be going in the easternmost plaza. The new exercise equipment and rubberized surfacing will match that of the recently installed Auditorium Shores project, just a few miles west.

Phase 2 will improve the quality of storm water before it gets to Lady Bird Lake and prevent erosion with rain gardens and also provide new tree groves for the area east of the Boardwalk. Future phases may include a deck and picnicking area but will be further defined once Phases 1 & 2 are completed.

The expansion along Lakeshore Blvd in both residential and commercial properties present both an opportunity and a challenge. Due to the growth, certain environmental issues threaten green space and the water quality of Lady Bird Lake. Making slight changes to the park infrastructure will remedy these challenges. With the neighborhood expanding, the beautification and amenities will benefit all families and professionals living and working in the area. The addition of the Lakeshore Park Rain Meadow in concert with the Boardwalk and the Eastside bridge and Trail relocation will alleviate the growing demands to a rapidly changing area.
