Process under way to name Austin BMX/Skatepark
The City of Austin begins today, Jan 9, 2014 the naming process for the 30,000-square-foot. concrete BMX and skateboard park located at the former Austin Recreation Center site in Central Austin.
The park is at 1213 Shoal Creek Boulevard between the new Austin Recreation Center and the Austin Community College parking garage, near 12th Street and Lamar Boulevard.
The facility, completed in 2011, includes an open-bowl area; a large plaza with numerous features such as benches; drinking fountains; and a restroom. The facility also includes energy-efficient LED lighting as well as landscaping designed to meet the requirements of an official wildlife habitat. An Art In Public Places artist has installed shade structures and an interactive art piece for the park.
Today’s announcement begins a 90-day period for public input and discussion about possible names for the park. The facilities naming ordinance allows the parkland to be named after an individual(s) (living or deceased) or something other than an individual such as a place or natural feature.
