9th Street BMX: Austin Parks Foundation (APF) It's My Park Day (IMPD) 11/2/19

We had a great IMPD this year. Our internal volunteers were able to knock it out early on Thursday 10/31. We moved 18 yards of mulch and planted 20 native plants. We focused on mulching the inside of the kids pump track to create a landscaping "moment" for visibility from the street. We mulched near the sidewalk for safety and around several trees. Big thanks to Cody Cox, CJ Romero, Mark, Gerald, Sal, Brian, Dolphin Jake, Mike E. and everyone who helped.

On 11/2/2019 we seeded the park with 50 lbs of grass seed. Focusing on the sides and back of jump to control erosion. Big thanks to Sarah; an external APF volunteer!

Huge thanks to Austin Parks Foundation (APF) for the mulch, mini grant for plants and seed to improve the park. APF is so supportive and awesome to work with! Great people, great mission!
