Many of us remember the Halloween floods of 2013. In the wake of the devastation, one neighborhood in particular rallied together to restore an important piece their lives – Onion Creek Greenbelt Park. Once again, our ACL Music Festival Grants program was able to step in and help a neighborhood in need.
The onion creek greenbelt park received $50,000 from our grants program to help clean-up after the flood, as well as install new picnic tables and park benches that were lost in the floods, and create better ADA accessible areas.
Since then, ACL Music Festival funding has helped us schedule multiple volunteer projects and clean-up days at Onion Creek, including projects on our city-wide volunteer days like It’s My Park Day, National Trails Day and National Public Lands Day.
