Saturday, June 29th, 7-11pm
Thousands and thousands of tiny bits of colorful cut glass have been laid carefully in place on the pump house wall at Shipe Pool. Together they form leaves and flowers, birds and bugs, and fantastic trees – a landscape filled with delightful surprises; a canopy of dreams. The Shipe Mosaic Mural is complete!
The mural is a beautiful and permanent expression of the community support for Shipe Park and Pool – hundreds of neighborhood volunteers helped create the mural at community work days held at Griffin School over the past three years. The formal dedication of the mural will be at the Fifth Annual Shipe Pool Party on Saturday June 29th at 7pm. Please join neighbors and friends in honoring this remarkable community effort and in making a collective commitment to our beloved neighborhood park and pool!
The Shipe Pool Party is a great event for everyone who cares about our sense of community in Austin and cherishes the resources we have in central-city neighborhoods like Hyde Park! It is a super gathering of friends and kids and families! As always there will be great summer food and treats. And like last year, we will have live music early followed by a movie in the park starting at 9pm. The pool will stay open late, and there is nothing more relaxing and refreshing than a dip in your neighborhood pool! So come enjoy a fantastic summer evening at Shipe Park!
See you at the pool!
