Congratulations to the Friends of (Beverly S. Sheffield) Northwest District Park for winning their first Austin Parks Foundation Neighborhood Grant! The monies from this grant will allow the group to fund future park improvement projects.

Speaking of park improvement projects, please join the Friends of Northwest Park on Saturday June 2, for the next work day. Projects will include painting the picnic tables and grills to get ready for the summer rush! Register for the summer picnic spruce up here.

Also, if you have not had the chance to do so, please take a minute to fill out the Survey of Community Priorities for Northwest District Park. The results of the survey, will help the Friends Northwest District Park prioritize future projects and grant submittals. The survey can be found at

Once again, congratulations!
