The West Side Nature Play Network

The West Side Nature Play Network presents an innovative and urgent intervention on the West Side. This model addresses both the need for accessible nature play sites for children and additional community stewardship of existing gardens, often maintained by dedicated older adults and long-time resident leaders.

This collaborative project, led by the Garfield Park Community Council and NeighborSpace, and in partnership with Austin Coming Together and The North Lawndale Community Coordinating Council, with design support from site design, is a five-year project funded by the Christopher Family Foundation.
