News & Alerts

NEM south entrance road closure

Northeast Metropolitan Park is undergoing construction to improve access and parking availability. Improvements to Wells Branch Parkway and Killingsworth Ln will connect to a second entrance road into Northeast Metro. The new entrance road will tie into existing park roads and add a loop around the park as well as additional parking and sidewalks. This construction will impact some access to features in the park for limited periods. Updates will be made here to alert the public when areas such as the skate park, splash pad, shelters, and picnic areas are closed. Construction is scheduled to be complete by June 2016. Click here to see the design.

Current Construction Impacts:

  • Picnic areas near the bridge crossing at Gilleland Creek
  • A section of the hike/bike trail is closed.

Travis County Parks’ BMX Racetrack opened in 2015 and ranks among the top tracks in the nation. It is one of few to meet new UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale) specifications as well as all USA BMX requirements. The 5M start hill propels riders down the first 30 foot wide straight to the first asphalt turn. In all, the track has three turns and runs 1000 feet. A special coating process called Skimming has been applied to the surface to maintain uniformity and to help weatherize the track. In addition to the world class track interior, additional features such as a covered staging area, covered viewing area, and accessible concession and restroom areas make this track one of a kind. Track operation times can be found at centraltexasbmx.com.

Northeast Metro Concession Stands:

Many tournament coordinators and other visitors coordinating company picnics enjoy using the concession stand facilities. While we do not provide food, beverages, or serving staff, we do provide a clean, easily accessible facility for people to set up as they wish.

Park staff are responsible for checking to see that the concession stand is clean, that all equipment is functioning properly, that there are ample trash bags for the day, and that the area is free of litter. It is the responsibility of the event coordinator to leave the concession stand clean and free of litter, and to notify park staff if any equipment is damaged or malfunctioning.

The event coordinator must see that all Texas Department of Health regulations are adhered to when selling food to the public.

Reservation Information:

For availability and reservation information, please call (512) 854-PARK (7275), or stop by our headquarters. NOTE: All Travis County Parks ballfield facilities are closed on Fridays and from December 1 - February 15.
