About Amigos de Parque Zaragoza
Founded on Cinco de Mayo 2020, the mission of Amigos de Parque Zaragoza, a sister-group of the Parque Zaragoza Neighborhood Association [PZNA], is to pick up the baton from the great leaders who served on the original park boards and help facilitate new grounds and facility improvements for our community’s children and adults alike to benefit from and enjoy.
We are dedicated to bringing our community together through park activities, returning cherished, old traditions, as well as creating new ones. We are committed to the preservation of Parque Zaragoza’s legacy to tell its story for generations to come. And we believe our park’s story is just getting started. In the tradition of the community advocates before, we believe Parque Zaragoza Neighborhood Park is a place of celebration and unity.
A first goal is to start the planning and fundraising for Parque Zaragoza’s 90th Anniversary next Cinco de Mayo, as an opportunity to tell its complete story. We invite everyone in the community who has enjoyed Parque Zaragoza or made a past contribution to join. Please email us at email@example.com.
About Parque Zaragoza
Since the late 1920’s, Parque Zaragoza Neighborhood Park has provided local residents a green space to enjoy. For multigenerational East Austin families, Parque Zaragoza Neighborhood Park is remembered for its three and four day long Diez y Siez and Cinco de Mayo celebrations, Potluck Thanksgivings, Adult Amateur Baseball and Softball tournaments, synchronized swimming and annual neighborhood reunions.
Join us this Cinco de Mayo as we formally launch the Amigos de Parque Zaragoza. This year's Cinco de Mayo Unsung Hero Award award goes to the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department staff, who since March 19th, have been caring for City of Austin essential worker children at the Parque Zaragoza Recreation Center, Northwest Recreation Center, and Dittmar Recreation Center.
