Introduction

The City of Austin needs your help and input!

Walter E. Long Park Master Plan
The City is developing an updated master plan for improvements to Walter E. Long Park, a regional park located in east Austin, situated just west of State Highway 130. The park is accessed via Blue Bluff Road. The property includes 3,695 acres of parkland, including the 1,165-acre Lake Walter E. Long and approximately 765 acres of preserved habitats and the Travis County Expo Center grounds.

Some of the existing facilities in the park include:
  • Hike and bike trails
  • Picnic areas
  • Volleyball courts
  • Boat ramps
  • Fishing piers
  • Skeet shooting range
  • Model airplane area
Past feedback
Input regarding the types of activities that should be considered for the park has been received from park users, area residents, and voices from throughout the region. This input has been used to create alternative arrangements for uses within the park. These arrangement alternatives are important, since they will guide the specific types of park uses and activities that are ultimately developed in each sector of the park. 

Your voice matters
Your input is very important in establishing the arrangement of uses in the park, and it will help guide the next step in the master planning process, which is the development of a preliminary concept plan.  This survey provides an opportunity to look at the arrangement alternatives and provide your comments and ideas.  The survey will take approximately 5 to 10 minutes.  Encourage your family members and neighbors to participate in this important survey as well!

Instructions
Please answer the questionnaire with your opinions. If your spouse or others in your family would like to complete a questionnaire, the same survey can be taken online. For each question, check the one box that is closest to your opinion unless instructions say, “Check all that apply.”

All individual survey answers will remain confidential and your information will not be sold or used for solicitation.
