PARK ON THE HILL
Taking advantage of the expanse of natural space, and the beauty of the Austin skyline view, The Hill has begun creating a neighborhood park for walking, meditating, picnicking, and gardening. Over time, this area will continue to add more trails, features, and amenities to further its identity as a beautiful and welcoming community space. If you would like to help grow and shape the Park on the Hill.
The Gardens on the Hill create an opportunity to put down roots, both physically and figuratively, in the neighborhood. They are an opportunity for community engagement centered around creating abundance and increasing well-being. Join us as we consider the ingredients necessary to build communication, self reliance, mutual respect, tolerance, caring, and food security. If you’d like to be a part of creating and sustaining authentic community through gardening.
