Project Parkway

Bringing Austin’s Red Line Parkway to Life

Project Parkway is Red Line Parkway Initiative’s capital campaign to raise $250,000 to support our efforts to plan, build, and steward the Red Line Parkway—a 32+ mile linear park and public space connecting from Downtown Austin to Leander.

The Parkway will provide residents of the Austin metro area with access to a thriving and inclusive multi-functional trail, creating opportunities for Austinites to enjoy car-free transit, parks, green space, and public art. 

As our metro area continues to grow at unprecedented rates, it is imperative that we come together to prioritize resources like the Parkway in our community. 

The Red Line Parkway will not only help improve Austin’s mobility, air quality and overall environment, it will also help improve: 

  • The physical and mental health of residents through access to green spaces, 
  • The affordability of living in Austin through access to car-free transportation, and, 
  • The social fabric of the community through access to inclusive spaces that promote art and recreation.

To bring this transformative resource and vision to life, we need your support.

Funds raised through the Project Parkway campaign will go directly toward helping RLPI as we lead the effort to:

  • Plan the Parkway by engaging the public, government agencies, and experts to create a community-driven plan;
  • Fund the Parkway by securing and stewarding both public and private donors;
  • Build the Parkway by working with all stakeholders to ensure integrity of the design and process;
  • Activate the Parkway through programming to bring the trail to life.
