Auditorium Shores West Lawn reopens on Tuesday


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Now that the construction project is complete, the West Lawn at Auditorium Shores will reopen to the public on May 27.

The lawn will also be available to pets and their owners as a temporary off-leash area until the official Auditorium Shores off-leash area construction is completed. Construction for the off-leash area will begin in June and is expected to finish by February 2015.

The East Lawn at Auditorium Shores will also close temporarily for construction starting May 27. Officials at the Department of Parks and Recreation said they expect this area of the park to re-open in February 2015 as well.

The Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail will remain open throughout all phases of the Auditorium Shores construction. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
