City of Austin Logo

The City of Austin and its community partners invite Northeast Austin residents to celebrate the final Master Plan for two large tracts of publically-owned land by participating in a free Family Fun Fest June 23.

The Family Fun Fest will include a Colony Park Master Plan Open House and a Community Resources Fair from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Multi-Purpose Facility and the adjacent grounds of the Turner-Roberts Recreation Center, 7201 Colony Loop Drive.

The open house will allow the community to see how its ideas and preferences for the area translate into a Master Plan that will go to the Austin City Council in early fall. The Master Plan focuses on 208 acres of publicly-owned land off Loyola Lane as well as 93 acres of adjacent City-owned parkland.

The Family Fun Fest will include food, music, and an opportunity for residents to interact with local service vendors to receive information on educational, health, and social services, safety, and adult/youth programs. Continue reading “Colony Park Master Plan and Family Fun Fest”
