BUDA – City park is now open to the public
The wait is finally over. Buda City Park is now officially open to the public.
Upgrades include two new playground areas for younger and older children with ADA compliant playground equipment, a splash pad, new restrooms, and a games and grilling area. The splash pad is closed during the winter months and will open in the spring.
With the addition of an amphitheater, the city of Buda is poised to become a premier festival and event location. The amphitheater design provides a festival feel for the audience. The city looks forward to attracting festivals, concerts, and other events in the future when it is safe to do so.
Buda City Park is the city’s only regional park. Regional parks are intended to serve the entire city and very often are considered the premier park in a community. Historically, City Park has hosted several popular events, including the city’s annual “Red, White & Buda” Independence Day celebration.
City Park is also a place to enjoy nature. As part of the improvements, more than 500 trees were planted. Species include pecan, Texas red oak, cedar elm, bigtooth maple and more.
“There are a lot of exciting things in store for City Park,” said Parks and Recreation Director Greg Olmer. “The amphitheater is our main focal point of the new and improved park. This gives us an opportunity to draw in additional festivals and regional festivals, when it is safe to do, that can bring in tourism. But the new playground area, splashpad and other amenities will provide a great outdoor experience to residents and visitors alike.”
