AUSTIN – A $15 million grant will fund a dramatic makeover of Waterloo Park, bringing new energy to a sleepy corner of downtown Austin.
The money to improve the park—including the addition of an amphitheater and great lawn that can accommodate up to 5,000 people—comes from the Moody Foundation.
Aside from the Moody Amphitheater and great lawn, the revamped Waterloo Park will also feature a mile and a half of trails, gardens and play spaces, among other features.
Work on Waterloo Park—a key part of a much larger effort to remake downtown’s Waller Creek from Lady Bird Lake to the UT campus—will kick off this year and should be completed by 2019, the Waller Creek Conservancy said.
