Seaholm Waterfront

In 2017 and 2018, Austin Parks Foundation (APF), The Trail Foundation (TTF) and the City of Austin Parks & Recreation Department (PARD) funded a collaborative planning study for the future of Seaholm Waterfront, the historic Seaholm Intake structure and its surrounding parkland.

The plan - which relies on public input via online platforms, stakeholder meetings and public open houses - will serve as a roadmap for future park improvements, including repurposing the decommissioned Seaholm Intake structures for public use and recreation.

The planning phase, which began in May of 2017, was completed in Winter 2017 and will go to the City of Austin in Summer 2018. The results of the study and planning will provide PARD and the City of Austin with the programming, operational and economic input needed to develop a world-class public facility that will respect the historic significance of the Seaholm Intake structure.
