Earth Day Festival in Austin TX 2016

Earth Day ATX Video

My husband and I attended Earth Day Festival in Austin, TX 2016.  Mueller Park is beautiful and a perfect place for this celebration.  I had never been to the park and was just amazed at the oasis so close to home.  

Did you know that the community is a redevelopment of the former Robert Mueller Municipal Airport into a mixed-use urban village in the heart of the city.   It is a sustainable community that is meeting extensive goals in housing and economic development. 

Mueller’s parks, trails and open space weave through the community, establishing a native, local ecosystem and bringing outdoor recreation and education options to Mueller residents, employees and neighbors. Twenty percent of the neighborhood is dedicated to parkland and open space.  Isn't that cool?  Austin IS a cool place to live!!  

Earth Day Festival was at Lake Park within the Mueller Community.
