The purpose of the Parks and Recreation Department is to provide, protect and preserve a park system that promotes quality recreational, cultural and outdoor experiences for the Austin community. The Austin Parks and Recreation Department is responsible for 300 parks and maintains over 20,000 acres of greenspace. But it’s not all just open space, we’re also in charge of parks and recreation amenities, cemeteries and golf courses; we host community events, provide educational programs, and deliver public services. http://austintexas.gov/parks
