Waller Creek runs through central Austin from Waterloo Park at 15th street, bisecting the UT campus and along the eastern edge of downtown terminating at Lady Bird Lake. In April of 2011, the City of Austin began the construction of a flood control tunnel along the 1.5 mile stretch of Waller Creek. Upon completion, the tunnel will remove 28 acres from the floodplain, protect the creek from erosion, and help clean the water. Visionary leaders saw the opportunity to catalyze on this investment and transform the 1.5 mile section of the creek into a chain of parks and connected trails. The organization leading the charge, the Waller Creek Conservancy, aims to involve the community in the revitalization of the Waller Creek urban area, which will be under construction for the next decade or more.
