AUSTIN, TX (CelebrityAccess MediaWire)– As part of standard ACL Festival preparations, C3 Presents worked with the Austin Parks and Recreation Department to establish a plan for post-Festival maintenance. This plan included an extended load-out period to allow time for the grounds to dry before breaking down large structures (like stages), taking extra precautions during the load-out process to further protect the grounds, thoroughly assessing conditions, then repairing and resodding areas of the park as needed.
While many areas of Zilker Park were very muddy, the Austin Parks and Recreation Department states that the grass and root system were still in tact. Zilker Park was restored to pre-Festival conditions, and C3 Presents covered the cost of post-Festival park maintenance.
About one acre of the grass is set to be replaced in the spring.
According to News 8 Austin, although the park is open, patrons are asked to avoid water-saturated areas in order to minimize damage. . –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
