The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board wants to establish a trail corridor along the Blanco River that will move north and eventually connect to the Violet Crown Trail in the Travis County and city of Austin trail system.
The board’s goal may be met sooner, with a piece of land next to the Five Mile Dam Soccer Complex now up for sale. The board decided to advise the city and county to consider purchasing the more than 16 acre tract along the Blanco River to add to the current park with the addition of a hike and bike trail.
