The urban forest and natural areas of Lady Bird Lake receive over 4 million visitors each year and represent the heart of Austin’s downtown park system. Austin’s Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) relies on a non-profit-public partnership with The Trail Foundation (TTF) to address the management demands of the ~200 acres of forested parkland surrounding the lake. This partnership provides a mechanism for prioritizing and funding the urban forestry needs of the area.
