Join us at the 4th annual, free Waller Creek Pop-Up Picnic. This community picnic is an Austin favorite, inviting everyone to experience Waller Creek with friends and family.

If you've attended one of the three annual Palm Park Picnics, you know exactly the potential of the Waller Creek project. Families come by car, bus, bike and on foot. They spread blankets and dine on local treats from picnic baskets prepared by great Austin restaurants, or enjoy the ones they packed themselves at home. They listen to music, catch up with neighbors, admire a little art and watch the sun drop behind the city skyline.

The Waller Creek Conservancy hosts the picnic each spring to raise funds and awareness, but there’s no confusing it with a black-tie gala. It just feels like Austin being Austin, the kind of coming together that, when the project is completed, will be possible on Waller Creek every night of the year.
