Just posted on the City of Austin website (7/23/09):

The City Council authorized execution of a construction contract for improvements to Roy G. Guerrero Colorado River Bend Park. This project is part of the 1998 Bond referendum and will include two multi-use sports fields, open areas, parking, driveways, lighting, a group picnic plaza and pavilion, a memorial to Roy G. Guerrero, trails, a playscape, restroom facilities, drainage improvements and public art.


The Austin Parks Foundation was the funder and sponsor of the original conceptual masterplan for this park in the late 1990s/early 2000s that led to the design and plans for this first phase.  Guerrero-Colorado River Park is equal in size to Zilker Park – over 300 acres and while much of it will left in a more natural state – it will offer more ballfields, trails, picnic areas and playscapes for all to enjoy.  This is the last major park project to be completed using 1998 city bond funding.
