2201 Barton Springs Rd Austin, TX
our parks are being taken over by special events. the city has a "cap" on the number of days specific parks like zilker park can be used for these purposes during a year - this cap was changed for ACL heading into next years event. I am all for great events in Austin. but not at the expense of citizens who want to use the park on a daily basis. presently a bit less than half of zilker park is available because of the "trail of lights" Christmas event. in total, the park, either fully or partially, will have been closed for roughly 112 days this year. this does not seem quite right.
