You wouldn't know the keepers of Austin's parks from your neighbors, but you'd miss them if they were gone. APF braves triple-digit heat, rain, and the odd cold snap to make up the difference between what the city can afford and what the parks need – all for the love of it, and all gratis. Coordinating volunteers, fundraising, and donating countless hours to keep our parks up to par is never a thankless gig when the reward is keeping Austin Austin.
