Republic Square Awarded Grant from the Central Park Conservancy

September 10, 2019

We’re thrilled to announce that the Downtown Austin Alliance Foundation was chosen by the Central Park Conservancy Institute for Urban Parks to participate in its first-ever Partnerships Lab! This new program leverages the resources and expertise of the Central Park Conservancy that will help Republic Square create and maintain a great public space. Members of our team are headed to New York this week to participate in a workshop with representatives from all eight of the parks selected for the program.

Did you know? In 2015, after a decade of working to improve the historic Republic Square, the Downtown Austin Alliance — along with the Austin Parks Foundation and the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department — created the city’s first public-private park partnership to renovate Republic Square. As the long-term managing partner of the square, the Downtown Austin Alliance Foundation seeks to develop a stakeholder engagement and implementation strategy in order to create a purposefully inclusive, diverse, meaningful, and loved space by all of Austin.
