Accomplishments

 

Let’s play — in our NEW playscape!

Our new playscape is a complete replacement from our prior play area and features an expanded footprint, concrete borders, rubberized mulch, and a wider variety of equipment. With its “built to last” construction, we’ll enjoy it for many years. Stop by and play or just enjoy the nearby benches and picnic tables.

CAUTION: Temporarily Closed Due To COVID.

Making Streets Safer

The Davis Spring community has been accepted as part of a nationwide study in tactical urbanism involving six cities across the United States. The study will use low-cost, easily implemented changes to improve traffic flow and control speeding. This was made possible by our HOA Traffic Committee which held a community forum and conducted a survey of residents, then presented a “needs analysis” to the Austin Traffic Dept and Austin District 6 Council Member Jimmy Flannigan.

Upgrades to the Pool

Taking advantage of the temporary COVID-19 closure, the following upgrades have been made in the pool area: renovation of the pump system; replacement of the pump room door; renovation of the bathrooms.

Improvements to the Trailhead Parking Lot

New lights in the parking lot will improve visibility and make it easier to visit the nearby community mailboxes. Also, some of the pebbles formerly used as mulch in our playscape have been used to dress up landscaping around the parking lot.

Making Neenah Avenue Greener & Safer

While we’re all happy with the recent work on Neenah Avenue in our neighborhood, we also had to (sadly) say goodbye to a number of trees.  By working with Williamson County Commissioner Terry Cook, we were able to not just replace those trees but also get more of them as well as a wider variety. “Thank you!” to the Davis Spring residents who help make our neighborhood more beautiful each year.

Bike riders (and parents of bike riders) will be happy to see that Commissioner Cook also made sure we got wide, safe bike lanes. Children biking to our nearby schools will be much safer because of her work.

Davis Spring Disc Golf Course

Members of the Davis Spring community worked with the Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) and Austin District 6 Council Member Jimmy Flannigan to turn a previously unused neighborhood greenbelt area into a new disc golf course. The 9-hole course was planned by noted designer John Houck and is a par 32. Read about what disc golfers in the area think of our new course.
