Boardwalk Grand Opening

The Boardwalk on Lady Bird Lake opened to the public with a Grand Opening ceremony attended by the Mayor, three City Council members and over three hundred members of the public. The Boardwalk creates a new 1.3-mile route in the heart of Austin on its most popular and recognized recreation area, running on dry land, across open water, through a woodland corridor and across wetlands. The $28 million project captures magnificent views of the skyline and it encounters undisturbed natural scenery along secluded limestone bluffs. Limbacher & Godfrey Architects served as lead architect for the six-year design and construction process.
