Improvement Project

Click to Donate to help us raise the $15,000 we need in order to get the $200,000 in grants from Neighborhood Partnering Program, Austin Parks Foundation, and PARD!

Austin Parks Foundation has chosen our grant for Balcones Park! They will be funding $50,000 worth of improvements in the park! This is the first milestone to reaching our improvement goals at Balcones Park and will go a long way in much needed improvements. Thanks APF for choosing our park!

Neighborhood Partnering Program has awarded us just under $150,000 in funding to the park. It is important to note that the NPP Grant requires us to raise $20,000 of the $150,000 and put in a number of volunteer hours. We currently have $4,060. Thanks to Textruss, Milwood Neighborhood Assoc and residents!

After much valuable back and forth with the NPP program, PARD, and stakeholders like yourself, we have finalized an application requesting a 20×30 ft Shade Structure at the pool and a 30×40 ft Pavilion (location still to be finalized).

Thank You also to MNA’s own Bethany Metzger, Johanna Hedges, as well as the wonderful teams at APF and NPP and PARD for working tirelessly on both of these grants to better our park! Also a Thank You to Four Seasons Community School, Walnut Crossing Neighborhood Association and Adelphi Acre Community Garden for partnering with Milwood NA on this venture!

Interested in joining us March 9th for a meeting about the improvements, fundraising and more. RSVP
