The city of Austin's Parks and Recreation Department is seeking input from residents as it develops a master plan for Givens District Park on East 12th Street in East Austin.
Givens is a 40-acre park traversed by Tannehill Creek. It includes a recreation center, a swimming pool, two covered pavilions, basketball and tennis courts, ball fields and a playground. The city acquired it in 1957.
Two community meetings have been held at the park to engage local residents. A third is scheduled for the early fall.
A survey is available in English and Spanish.
A master plan process is underway for the Walter E. Long Metropolitan Park, also in East Austin, as well as at other parks in the city as part of a department-wide initiative to develop parks that are under development or undeveloped across the city.
