Austin's Bicentennial gift to the nation is "a bold plan to preserve, restore and enhance the creeks and waterways of Austin."

Imagine being able to walk freely throughout a city within a network of scenic corridors, removed from the congestion, pollution and danger of city streets. Children go to school without being threatened by traffic. Adults walk or bike to work on tree-lined paths beside flowing streams.
