Discover the Kitty King Powell Lawn at Waterloo Park

Set to open next summer, the 11-acre Waterloo Park will feature a variety of unique spaces to immerse yourself in nature in the heart of downtown Austin.

In the Kitty King Powell Lawn, kids can get active while letting their imaginations run wild exploring the playground’s nature-inspired play features. Click through the photo gallery for a glimpse at the newly-installed Log Jam climbing structure, Mega Grass Maze, and hillside stone slide!

This dynamic green space was funded by, and named in memory of, Kitty King Powell who spent much of her life in Austin with her husband and family. Although she later moved to Houston, she had fond memories of her hometown and wanted to ensure Austin kept its natural beauty — green, vibrant, and welcoming to all.⁣
