The future uses of Bull Creek District Park (pictured) will be the subject of a public meeting tonight.

City officials will hold a public meeting tonight to discuss the future of Bull Creek District Park and get input from the community about that future.  The meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, 600 Water St.

The park was placed off-limits to dogs for a time, because of fears that the dogs' waste products were contaminating the waters of Bull Creek.  Now dogs are only allowed in the park on a leash in certain areas.

Officials from Austin's Parks and Recreation Department and the city's Watershed Protection Department will release their recommendations based on a study of the water running through the park at tonight's meeting.
