Republic Square Park Due for an Update
Changes are coming to one of the city’s oldest downtown squares. Republic Square Park is in line for a makeover as new development is changing the face of that part of downtown. In this week’s Changing Austin, KUT’s Matt Largey talks to Marty Stump from the city’s Parks Department about what’s in store.
It’s a transformational time. Great parks, particularly great urban parks, are driven by their context: The properties, the mixed-use development, the greater density in the downtown, begin to reach a critical mass where people are in the parks more often, doing a greater variety of things.
The city will hold a public meeting to talk about some of the ideas tonight at 6 at Ballet Austin near Republic Square.
