I can’t wait for the opening of Waterloo Park and Moody Amphitheater in downtown Austin this August.
I’ve been watching construction for a long time, marveling at the elevated walkway and trying to figure out the weird white thatched roof of the amphitheater. I need to get in there and see it up close, but last Friday’s preview was cancelled due to rain.
In the meantime, the Waterloo Greenway Conservancy has unveiled a schedule packed with events, from CommUNITY Day in August to introduce the new 11-acre park located along Red River Street between 12th and 15th Streets to the Lebermann Plaza Concert Series a series of performances from September to November at the 200-seat outdoor theater. Also on the schedule? A Día de Los Muertos Festival in October with live performances and a community altar; a 50th anniversary reunion performance by Asleep at the Wheel in October; Creek Show 2021 in November; and two nights of holiday films in December.
Stay tuned. We’ll be giving you a sneak peek of the new park as soon as we can. In the meantime, enjoy these photos shared by the Waterloo Greenway Conservancy.
