greenbelt and park curfew hours are enforced year-round
by the Austin Police Department. Curfew begins at 10 pm
and ends at 5 am daily.
Pet waste pollutes our water and is a health risk to pets and people. Pet waste left on trails,
sidewalks and grassy areas can wash into nearby creeks and lakes.
The bacteria, parasites and viruses in pet waste can harm our water
quality. There are Mutt Mitt boxes filled with plastic bags for
picking up and disposing of pet waste in many locations
throughout the greenbelt and park for your convenience. Note:
Failure to pick-up pet waste can result in fines starting at $85.
Firearms: possession or discharge of any firearm (including BB or pellet guns) or fireworks in greenbelts or
on park land at any time is a punishable offense.
to activity around you as you walk through the greenbelt, park land and
neighborhood. (Even if you take your iPod along for a walk –
stay aware of your surroundings.)
Tuck a cell
phone or walkie-talkie in your pocket. Accidents are never
“planned”. A mobile communication device could assist
you in saving a pet, a complete stranger or yourself from serious
coyotes in the area. Please keep your pets on a leach and do not
allow them to roam unattended in leach free areas. In the spring,
keep small pets indoors to avoid attacks.
There have been
incidents of BB and pellet guns being discharged at wildlife and
homes. If you come in contact with wildlife or a pet that appears
to have been shot, maimed or killed by humans, or appears to have
come in contact with a coyote or other wild predator, please call
311 for this non-emergency situation. The Parks and
Recreation Department (PARD) does not encourage residents to handle
or remove animal remains found in greenbelt or on park land. The
311 dispatcher will give you appropriate instructions and contact
the Austin Police Department, PARD and/or the wildlife department
for animal removal or further action.
In an emergency
situation – and especially if an event is taking place in
front of you - call 911 immediately.
