If you were at ACL the Friday you saw Zilker Park like you’ve never seen it before. That’s because ACL organizer C3 Presents spent nearly $2.5 million in improvements to the park, which included that amazing, no shoes needed grass.
Then on Saturday it poured, making Zilker Park a mud pit. Like a true festival, the fans and music didn’t stop one bit though.
This unfortunately ruined C3’s mass improvements and investment in Zilker…BUT ONLY UNTIL THE END OF OCTOBER.
C3 has reported that though Zilker Park is very muddy, the Austin Parks and Recreation Department states that “the grass and root system are still in tact. Zilker Park will be restored to pre-Festival conditions, and as always, C3 Presents will be covering the cost of post-Festival park maintenance.”
