Best Park in Need of a Champion

Wooldridge Square Park

Won’t someone adopt this historic 1839 public square? To realize its potential as a stellar Downtown people space, Wooldridge Square needs a leading champion or two – and lots of stakeholders – who can devote time, resources, and powers of persuasion to rally a major park renovation and raise $500,000 to fund it. Revitalizing this heritage park – one of four included in Austin's original layout, although only three survive: Republic, Brush, and Wooldridge – offers a swell legacy opportunity for some lad or lady of leisure, and so much more satisfying than redoing the kitchen. Apply to the Austin Parks Foundation.
