Mount Bonnell May See Changes - Public Meeting Tonight

Update: For all those interested in voicing their opinions over potential changes to the iconic Austin destination, you can do that today at 6:30 p.m. during a public meeting at the Mayfield House and Nature Preserve.

Original Story (Feb. 8, 12:40 p.m.): Alluring Austin overlook Mount Bonnell may see some slight changes.

The Austin Parks and Recreation Department is partnering with the West Point Society of Central Texas to make updates at the historic park. The City of Austin is holding a community engagement meeting to field public input on the potential changes to the park.

The city hopes to make the scenic view even more scenic, with improvements to the overlook’s landscaping and possibly the historic marker at the top of the overlook.

You can hear more about the proposals and offer your own suggestions on Feb. 20,  6:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Mayfield House and Nature Preserve
