Waterloo Greenway (formerly Waller Creek) is a 1.5 mile park system covering 35 acres of connected green space in the heart of Austin, Texas. It is an iconic and flourishing chain of public parks, comprised of walking and biking trails, playscapes, open green spaces, and a healthy creek, enlivened by Austin’s diverse and vibrant community. BMD had the pleasure of working on this initiative, learning about the city and community that have come together, honouring history, restoring nature, and celebrating people.
The new name reflects the project’s ties to the history of Austin. Waterloo was the original name for the city of Austin, 1839 and a Greenway by definition is a strip of undeveloped land near an urban area, set aside for recreational use or environmental protection. With a combination of both existing parks and new spaces it was important that the name be a nod to the past, and also forward-looking.http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/behance/vorr/~3/a75w0y6XJ9g/Waterloo-Greenway
