The Austin Parks and Recreation Department offers diverse nature-based and science programs that teach outdoor skills, nature preservation, and wildlife appreciation. There are programs, services and volunteer opportunities tailored to all ages and abilities. Our department also includes initiatives that seek to eradicate that disparity of access to parks and nature due to income levels. We are also exploring the establishment of “resiliency hubs” at our recreation centers in low-income neighborhoods to provide for essential services during emergencies.
