The mission of Creek Show is to surprise and delight the community while also creating awareness about the importance of Waller Creek's transformation for Austin's social, cultural, and ecological future. An outreach program of the Waller Creek Conservancy, Creek Show supports and celebrates outstanding design that in turn sparks conversation about the transformation of Waller Creek. Launched in 2014 as a one night event, Creek Show has grown in popularity each year and the programs have expanded to match.
The Waller Creek Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to create and maintain a chain of extraordinary urban parks around a restored Waller Creek, in partnership with the City of Austin, for the benefit of all. The Conservancy renews the natural environment, promotes play, health and wellness, economic vitality, and mobility, and engages the community through outreach, education, cultural events, and the arts.
The Waller Creek Conservancy, in partnership with the City of Austin, is developing a chain of parks around a restored Waller Creek in downtown Austin. Running from Waterloo Park at 15th Street to Lady Bird Lake, the new Waller Creek parks district will include more than 37-acres of newly designed and connected urban parks and public open space, and more than three miles of new hike and bike trails, along with engaging art and educational programming. Founded on the bedrock of great design, the revitalized Waller Creek will renew the natural environment, foster the creative arts, and nourish authentic and uplifting experiences that reflect Austin’s diversity and dynamic spirit.
