Amigos de Parque Zaragoza | Kids Out and About Austin

Amigos de Parque Zaragoza

Founded on Cinco de Mayo 2020, the mission of Amigos de Parque Zaragoza is to pick up the baton from the great leaders who served on the original park boards and help facilitate new grounds and facility improvements for our community’s children and adults alike to benefit from and enjoy. We are dedicated to bringing our community together through park activities, returning cherished, old traditions, as well as creating new ones. We are committed to the preservation of Parque Zaragoza’s legacy to tell its story for generations to come. And we believe our park’s story is just getting started. In the tradition of the community advocates before, we believe Parque Zaragoza Neighborhood Park is a place of celebration and unity. ​A first goal is to start the planning and fundraising for Parque Zaragoza’s 90th Anniversary next Cinco de Mayo, as an opportunity to tell its complete story. We invite everyone in the community who has enjoyed Parque Zaragoza or made a past contribution to join. Please email us at amigosdeparquezaragoza@gmail.com.
