The Friends of Shipe Park were awarded an $8000 grant for this project by Austin Parks Foundation. (See the January 2011 Pecan Press for additional details.) Today I got word that in addition to that grant, a generous anonymous neighbor has pledged to match new donations to this project, up to $10,000. To make a donation to the project, go to this page.
Click on “Gifts to Special Funds” and select “Shipe Park” on the donation fund.
Friends of Shipe Park is also accepting donations of flat glass, tile and volunteer labor. If you want to donate supplies or volunteer, please email
