Coming soon: Phase 1b of Republic Square Improvements

AustinParksFoundation Parks, Special Projects Leave a Comment

As we move into summer (yeah, I know its 100 for the fourth day in a row) we are gearing up for Phase 1b of improvements to Republic Square in Downtown Austin.  The big items on the list are removal of the southern berm along fourth street and the construction of a very cool deck/stage around the central Auction Oak.  We are working finalizing plans and obtaining final approvals for the parks dept, but we’ll replace the berm with new irrigation and grass and the deck/stage is engineered to protect the big oak tree while allowing folks to enjoy its shade.  Only eleven hand dug posts three feet in width will be holding up the deck and the impact should be minimal.  We’ll be rolling out features of the deck in the next few weeks, but it will be faced with limestone and match the new stone bollards and chain enclosure already in place.
