Where Austin’s Story Begins

Most people pass through Republic Square Park with little idea of its storied past. Outside of special events, the park sits quietly, largely unused. Austin Parks Foundation is leading an effort to shine the spotlight on Republic Square Park – to honor its important role in our city’s history while sparking interest in the potential for its future. In partnership with the Downtown Austin Alliance and the City of Austin, our goal is to revitalize this small urban park and have it take its place among Austin’s most treasured parks.

We hope you’ll join us in the effort to restore Republic Square to it’s former glory. You can learn more about the history, vision and future of Republic Square by clicking on any of the sections below.
