Kingsbury Commons

Kingsbury Commons Site Plan

The Conservancy is thrilled to begin the implementation of the Pease Park Master Plan! PPC is embarking on an exciting new project to revitalize the southern 12 acres of Pease Park, known as Kingsbury Commons.

This project is the first phase in the Pease Park Master Plan and is made possible in part thanks to a generous gift from The Moody Foundation. This is the chance for Pease Park to have a more memorable and fitting gateway to this important civic landmark. A place that is beautiful, fun, and relaxing to be in - Pease Park can be both a signature central city park that is a symbol of our growing city, as well as a pleasant place to enjoy in respite from everyday stresses.

We have awarded Austin landscape architecture firm Ten Eyck Landscape Architects the contract to lead the design and construction of Kingsbury Commons. TELA has assembled a design team with expertise in all aspects of creating safe, welcoming, and enjoyable public spaces for all of Austin to enjoy.

Kingsbury Commons includes...

  • Enhanced entryway at Parkway & Kingsbury
  • Adaptive reuse of the historic Tudor Cottage and a new terrace as community gathering space
  • New multi-use facility with restrooms and a volunteer service center
  • Restoration of historic features such as CCC-era picnic tables
  • Interactive water play feature
  • Imaginative nature play area
  • Innovative recreational and educational treehouse
  • Open, multi-purpose lawn
  • Enhanced basketball and volleyball courts
  • Multigenerational fitness area
  • Additional amenities and features (bike racks, tables, benches, wayfinding & interpretive signage, information kiosk, donor wall)
