Comments: Boggy Creek Greenbelt is a linear park that meanders through the heart of East Austin. The trail passes trees and vegetation typical of Central Texas. The routes venture out into surrounding neighborhoods that were historically populated by African Americans. The walk emphasizes Black history and exemplifies changes that showcase current gentrification of the area.
