Found just north of Barton Hills Elementary School at 2010 Home Dale, you can access the east entrance of the Greenbelt. This entrance leads to multiple hiking trails as well as The Flats and Campbell’s Hole, a popular family-friendly swimming hole. Featured here are images of the Greenbelt Guardians, a volunteer group founded by landscape architect Glee Ingram in 2003.
Volunteer groups such as the Barton Creek Greenbelt Guardians are essential in maintaining Austin's parks and open spaces. Peruse the slides to see some of the ambitious projects completed on one of these workdays.
The Barton Creek Greenbelt is heavily trafficked. Mother nature also takes a toll on the many trails. In this series of images, volunteers add new barriers to repair erosion damage and help to prevent future erosion.
Erosion caused by heavy rains can wash out trails and bridges. In this series of images, volunteers build a new bridge to make the trail more user-friendly.
You don't have to be a carpenter or engineer to help out. Actions as simple as picking up trash make the greenbelt more pleasant for everyone.
