More Than One Austin Park Will Require Passes Starting March 2021


Austin Community Impact – With temperatures in the 80’s and Austin residents heading out to public parks in large numbers, day passes will once again be required for anyone visiting Emma Long Metropolitan Park in West Austin or Walter E. Long Metropolitan Park in East Austin starting March 12. Passes for vehicles or pedestrians…

The passes are to limit overcrowding and ensure social distancing at both parks. They will be required March 12-Oct. 31 for vehicles and March 12-Sept. 7 for pedestrians and bicycles.

After they receive a pass and arrive at the park, visitors will not be allowed to travel in and out, according to the parks and recreation department. Visitors should be prepared to stay at the park until they are ready to leave.
