The Heart of the Park
Established as a non-profit in 1992, the Austin Parks Foundation is a dedicated force behind the preservation and restoration of the 300+ parks that call Austin home. APF is the long standing Featured Charity Partner of the above mentioned Austin City Limits Music Festival. The organization has also emerged as the interim operator for the restoration of the Zilker Train, with proceeds of the operation benefiting Zilker Park directly. The future of Austin’s parks relies on the improvements and developments driven by the foundation.
