Pease Park Conservancy reached another milestone Monday night, February 25, as the City of Austin Design Commission approved the design of our Kingsbury Commons Project as being in compliance with city design and sustainability standards!

Conservancy CEO Heath Riddles and Tim Campbell with Ten Eyck Landscape Architects provided commissioners with an overview of the project’s design and answered questions posed by commissioners.

The Kingsbury Commons Project is a renovation to the southern 13 acres of Pease Park, as laid out in the Pease Park Master Plan, adopted by the Austin City Council in 2014. It includes repurposing the Historic Tudor Cottage, a new event terrace, restrooms, volunteer building, playground, nature play, interactive water feature, treehouse, lawn, sport courts, new wayfinding, signage, and ecological restoration.

Many thanks to our incredible design team, including Ten Eyck Landscape Architects, Clayton & Little Architects, Mell Lawrence Architects, Garza EMC, LLC, Austin Parks and Recreation Department, and American Realty Corporation.
