The Bull and Barton Creek greenbelts are set to reopen August 8th.
But the Austin parks and Rec department is adding a new twist, reservations. PARD officials say through a new capacity management pilot program they will start requiring reservations to visit the parkland, on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Reservations are free and can be made online beginning August 1. If a computer is not available, visitors may leave a voicemail at 512-974-6797.
The Program with run for five months, starting next Saturday.
