Location

Republic Square

422 Guadalupe Street Austin, TX 78701

Austin’s very first park, and the birth place of the city we love, Republic Square is at the center of the movement for public spaces. Newly renovated in 2017 through an innovative public-private partnership between Austin PArks Foundation, the City of Austin Parks & Recreation Department and Downtown Austin Alliance, this urban oasis has taken its rightful place as a community center, and the premiere park space it was always meant to be. We are excited to host an evening devoted to making the dream of beautiful, accessible parks like this one available throughout Austin.
