As the largest urban creek restoration in the Nation, Waterloo Greenway represents a paradigm shift for the City of Austin. In partnership with the City of Austin, the Waterloo Greenway leads the transformation of a blighted urban creek into a world-class public open space that emphasizes the role and importance of urban ecology, social and environmental change and leveraged the power of parks and open space to be a catalyst for economic revitalization. As the flagship park space along the creek corridor, the 11-acre Waterloo Park represents a new vision for equitable urban park space that enhances multimodal connectivity and activates this signature open space though art, educational, cultural programming, nature play and events throughout the park.
