Let's go to the Park!
ATXgo! program is proud to present our Central Texas Parks Access Guide—a searchable database of state and local parks in Travis, Bastrop, and Caldwell Counties—made possible by a generous grant from the St David's Foundation.
More than ever, we need outdoor spaces to social distance safely and enjoy the health benefits of spending time out in nature. Art Sparks Texas is a long-time partner of parks organizations in Central Texas and we proud to provide this access guide to our community.
