Based on recommendations from Limbacher & Godfrey’s 2009 Barton Springs Master Plan, the City is planning for construction of a “ daylighting” project for Eliza Spring. Eliza Spring holds a unique position in both the cultural and the ecological history of the park. It is the home of the most robust population of the Barton Springs Salamander, and its concrete amphitheater construction is credited to Andrew Zilker himself. In building this open-to-the-sky spring run, the City will enhance salamander habitat to improve the long term recovery of the species.
