On November 1, 2018, the Austin City Council approved the construction award bid to ASD Consultants, Inc., as the successful bidder for the improvements at Little Stacy Neighborhood Park. The Notice to Proceed (NTP) for ASD Consultants to begin work on the park improvements will be issued in late December 2018.
The 6.73-acre neighborhood park serves the Travis Heights-Fairview Park Neighborhood. Little Stacy is sited at a distinctive horseshoe bend of Blunn Creek. Existing park amenities include a shelter house with restrooms constructed in the 1930s along with a wading pool. Other existing amenities include lighted tennis courts, volleyball court, half-court basketball, playground and picnic area. Improvements are to address ADA compliance, facilities and playground improvement and drainage controls to minimize erosion of park grounds.
In 2015, the Parks and Recreation Department hired the landscape architectural firm of Asakura Robinson to initiate the research and preliminary design phase that included community involvement for the development of a final site plan. Three public engagement opportunities were held for community input/feedback and participation. The initial meeting occurred at Little Stacy Park, August 30, 2016 and the remaining meetings were held at Travis Heights Elementary School on October 24 and January 23, 2016.
