The Greenbelt is open again. Celebrate with this drone footage of the area.
The Austin Parks and Recreation Department re-opened the Barton Creek Greenbelt for public use Wednesday, and many Austinites have already been taking advantage of the fact that they can hike, swim and jump off rocks at Campbell’s Hole again.
The Barton Creek Greenbelt has reopened Wednesday afternoon August 24, 2016 to recreational use after recent flood waters caused a closure from last week when the flow was deemed unsafe. Gilbert Acosta enjoys a peaceful alcove near what is called The Flats near Campbell’s Hole as he enjoys the midday bliss of cool waters and clear skies. “I love to hike and come here often.” said Acosta, adding, “This is a great way to spend the day.”
One person celebrated by taking some drone footage of the area Thursday and posting it on Reddit Friday. All of the above activities are featured, plus a cute dog.
Enjoy the footage below, and stay safe if you go out to Barton Creek this weekend.
