Lakeway Friends of the Parks


Wilderness Run

The return of the Wilderness Run/Walk is scheduled for April 13th!!!  After a four year hiatus, we are bringing back this popular event.  This year's iteration will feature a 5k main course as well as a 1 mile course geared towards the kiddos.  We're currently working on new t-shirts that should be available at the event as well as other fun surprises.  Runners, walkers, dogs, strollers, etc, are all invited to participate so start training and we'll see you in the spring!

If you, or someone you know would be interested in being an event sponsor, please let us know at "".  Every cent we make goes right back into Lakeway's parks and trails.

February Workday

Thanks to all that came out to  our February workday.  We had two crews in City Park, one working on the gardens and one working on general cleanup, as well as a crew in Smith Greenbelt continuing the invasives removal started in January.  All crews made great progress as we prepare for the spring.  Look forward to seeing everyone in March!

Lunch Volunteers Needed!!!

Are you looking for a volunteer job with comradery, flexibility, fulfillment, and 100% appreciation ?  The FOP lunch group needs additional volunteers.  Just add your name to the volunteer list.   Contribute  a  lunch menu dish on the second Saturday of each month IF your schedule permits.

The time involved, in addition to preparation, is approximately 10:45 AM - 12:45 PM on the Saturday workdays.  

The spent and hungry workers will appreciate your efforts more than you can imagine.  How about it?

The 2024 annual meeting is in the books and was a great success.  Thanks all for coming out and all your contributions over the last year.  Y'all help make this a great community to call home.

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.
