Austin Street Playground to Get Upgraded Comfort Station

More details from the 2009 budget are coming out. Here we see $400K going towards the Comfort Station at the Austin Street Park in AQUA. There are other beautification projects listed above, just click on the image.

The immensely popular Austin St. park needs new bathrooms something awful. They are filthy and broken. Let's hope the $400K goes towards a major renovation and not into some contractor's pocket.

I don't know why so many people go to this park over the one on 72nd and GCP, the Sobelson Playground in Forest Park, or even the huge one on Yellowstone. They all love the Austin Street park, but the end of the summer should ease the traffic a bit.

And one more reminder - bicycles are not allowed in the Austin Street park. And if I had my way, water balloons would be prohibited too. As would bratty kids who put their feet over the fountain spouts.
