This National Trails Day, the VCT Pop Up Park will be popping up at Shady Grove for the afternoon! Come check out the park while enjoying some great food, celebrating National Trails Day with us, and learning about the Violet Crown Trail!
Why a Pop Up Park?
Austin is famous for many things, one of which is our culture of our citizens getting outdoors and experiencing nature. Our Greenbelt and Zilker Park and many trails are famous destinations and the new 30-mile Violet Crown Trail will soon be the single longest trail system of its kind in the region.
We invite Austinites and Austin visitors alike to take a moment to “recharge” with the Violet Crown Trail through our Pop Up Park!.
What is a Pop Up Park?
A temporary destination for guests to rest, recharge and connect with nature. The Violet Crown Trail Pop Up Parks create an experience immersing guests into a scene from the Violet Crown Trail itself through a temporary park scene. Guests can enjoy a little recreation with distractions such as corn-hole, water, hammocks for the ultimate relaxation experience, and a little vitamin D compliments of the great outdoors.
