This month, the City of Austin’s Parks and Recreation Department released its draft master plan for improvements to Brush Square. Like Republic Square, Brush Square is one of three remaining public squares from the 1839 Waller Plan for Austin. The square, in its current state, is an often forgotten and underutilized downtown space. Located in southeast downtown near the downtown rail station and the convention center, the square is ripe for a transformation. Brush Square also serves as the home to the Susanna Dickinson Museum, O. Henry Museum, the Austin Fire Museum, and Austin Fire Station #1.
See the exciting possibilities for the future fo Brush Square and share your ideas!
