September 6, 2012 – East Cesar Chavez neighborhood – 1307 Haskell Street
City & East Austin Community Partner to Celebrate the Federal Designation of East Austin’s ‘Tejano Trails’ as National Recreation Trail
A ribbon-cutting ceremony & reception celebrating federal designation of the East Austin’s “Tejano Trails” as a National Recreation Trail system was held at the historic National Fish Hatchery pond (near the Rebekah Baines Johnson (RBJ) Tower, 1307 Haskell Street) in the East Cesar Chavez neighborhood.
Designation by the US Department of Interior creates more opportunities for the “Tejano Trails” to showcase a community dedicated to preserving its cultural history. These Austin trails highlight historic properties (residential/commercial/public) as well as local art commemorating Tejano music legends. The two trails are the ‘Tejano Healthy Walking Trail’ and ‘Trail of Tejano Legends’.
Here is an audio montage featuring various guests and co-sponsors of the ‘Tejano Trails’.
