Located near the Northern boundary of Wooten, Wooten Park is a beloved part of the community. Our neighborhood has been actively improving the park since 2005. Some highlights of work include raised butterfly gardens near the school, planting of almost 100 trees, regularly participating in It’s My Park Day, and installing the beautiful garden bed near the park sign. See the complete history of the park for more information.
We are currently fundraising for a shaded picnic area to be funded through grants. To show our ongoing commitment to our park, we are hoping to raise at least $10,000 of the necessary funds ourselves. See our pavilion estimate for more information.

Wooten Park is in need of a shade structure in order to allow parents relief from Austin’s notorious sun while watching their children at the adjacent playground, and improved trash amenities to help keep the park clean.
Wooten Park is a beloved asset in the heart of a diverse neighborhood that contains no other public space. For the many nearby residents who live in large apartment complexes, the park is the only natural space accessible to them. Ours is a neighborhood with many young families, recent immigrants, and low-cost apartment complexes. Wooten Elementary School, which borders the park, serves a student body composed of 92.8% economically disadvantaged students and 80% English language learners. Park access is crucial for child development, physical fitness, and improved mental health, making it all the more important for neighborhoods whose residents are already under significant economic and social stress.
