Downtown Austin’s Hike-and-Bike Trail got a workout the past couple of weeks. Usage of the trail increases by more than 300%  during the weekends of ACL. That’s one of the things Kevin Connor learned during his conversation with Heidi Anderson, Executive Director of The Trail Foundation. Since 2003,  the mission of TTF  has been to protect, enhance, and connect the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake for the benefit of all. TTF contributes millions of dollars annually to the upkeep of the trail, and recently there have been discussions about the foundation taking over management of the trail from an overworked and underfunded parks department. A model for this kind of private/public partnership is the Central Park Conservancy in New York. Hear more about the work of TTF here:
