Richard Moya Park will be open on Wednesdays and Saturdays

Description

Richard Moya Park is located in eastern Travis County, approximately 20 minutes' drive from downtown Austin.

Richard Moya Park offers visitors the gentle topography typical of the Blackland Prairie. Stands of large pecan and oak trees provide ample shade to the grassy picnic areas scattered throughout the park. The peaceful, wooded surroundings, bordered on the south by Onion Creek, provide an ideal locale for nature study, school outings and bird watching.

Two miles of hike and bike trails wind through the large pecan groves. A historic, century-old bridge that once was the Congress Ave. bridge over the Colorado River in downtown Austin now crosses Onion Creek in the park, providing a scenic backdrop to this diverse urban park. Covered group shelters, two multi-use fields along with the park's natural beauty, convenience, and easy accessibility have made it one of the most popular family gathering places in eastern Travis County.

Richard Moya 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.
