Zilker's Great Lawn Set To Re-Open

Rows and rows of bikes parked at the Austin City Limits Music Festival last weekend. City crews expect to have the Great Lawn at Zilker Park reopen by next Friday.

It's only been a week since the Austin City Limits Music Festival enveloped the Great Lawn of Austin's Zilker Park. In past years, the weeks after ACL Fest have found the city and promoter C3 Productions working to restore the field to its normal verdant state.

This year, things are moving a bit quicker.

The Zilker Metropolitan Park Great Lawn will reopen next Friday, September 30th.  Until the lawn is ready, Austin's Parks and Recreation Department is asking people to avoid using the area, while maintenance crews complete their work.
