Lakeway Friends of the Parks


Parks and Rec Town Hall!!!

There will be a parks and rec town hall this Thursday, 12/7, from 6:30-8pm at the Activity Center.  Please come out to see the updated vision and plans for Lakeway's Parks and Trails.  Feedback at this event will help the parks department and city council prioritize projects as part of an anticipated parks bond.

Details can be found here

December Workday
The December workday will take place on Saturday, December 9th.  We will meet at City Park pavilion at 8am.  We'll be finishing up a couple projects that were started last month:  cleaning up around the pickleball courts and clearing the downed trees in front of the bench in Smith Greenbelt.  There will also be a crew hauling out some dead material at City Park near the butterfly and Barnes gardens.  Last but certainly not least will be a group winterizing the garden beds at both City Park and Hamilton Greenbelt.  Lunch will be grilled cheese sandwiches, soups, salads, and desserts.  Thank you lunch crew!

Annual Meeting

The annual meeting is now scheduled for Monday, January 29th at the Lakeway Activity Center.  Dinner will be served and Lake Travis Fire Rescue has been invited to speak.  They have been doing significant work in Lakeway's parks and greenbelts with much more planned for the coming years.  If attending, please send an RSVP to Carol at 

Wilderness Run
The Wilderness Run/Walk is scheduled to return in 2024!  The event is scheduled for 4/13th at the Hamilton Greenbelt, starting at the old justice center.  Details are still being sorted out, but it's likely to run in the previous format including both a three and five mile option.  Runners, walkers, dogs, strollers, etc, are all invited to participate so start training and we'll see you in the spring!

Lunch Volunteers Wanted and Needed!!!

Thanks Jim!

FoP is sorry to say that Jim Dunn is moving on from the group as he and his family move out of the Lakeway area.  Jim has been an integral part of FoP for going on two decades.  He's worked on countless projects, served on the board, been the chair, and done immeasurable good for the group.  He also took on the responsibility of building and maintaining our website and sent out all membership emails for many years.  Thanks Jim for all your help and best wishes on your next chapter!

Workdays occur the second Saturday of the month from September through May.  The group meets at the Lakeway City Park pavilion on the upper level at 8am and breaks into work groups from there.  We then work until approximately noon at which point lunch is served for all the volunteers.
