Join Austin Parks Foundation and The Trail Foundation to explore the potential plans for the historic Seaholm Intake Facility over FREE Lick Ice Cream. The goal for this revamp is to create an open and flexible space that can be used any day by the public and periodically for events, including improvements such as: flexible lawn space, multiple water access points, trail restorations and an amphitheater.
Free Lick Ice Cream will be offered on a first come, first served basis, so come out early to beat the heat and the lines!
About the site:
The Seaholm Intake facility is an iconic Art Deco design and once was the pump house for the Seaholm Power Plant. The Seaholm Power Plant represents a strong civic presence in the cityscape of downtown Austin and showcases a unique period of American Art Deco municipal architecture and Public Works engineering. Seaholm operated as a power plant until 1989. In 1996, Austin City Council authorized the decommissioning of the plant and all the associated buildings, in preparation for future adaptive re-use. The Seaholm Intake Facility is located on the banks of Lady Bird Lake and the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail. (seaholmwaterfront.org)
