Rathgeber Village Walk on Feb 15th

The Colorado River Walkers will be hosting a great walk in Austin on Saturday, February 15th.  The walk start point is Bartholomew Park, 5201 Berkman Drive.  From Bartholomew Park, the route enters the Mueller development, a retail and residential area established on the site of the former Mueller Airport. 

The Rathgeber Village is featured on this walk;  it is at the eastern end of the Mueller neighborhood, and it is home to several non-profit organizations, including the Austin Children’s Shelter, the Rise School, the Salvation Army, and Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Walkers may start the walk anytime between 8:00 am and 11:00 am, and they must finish by 2:00 pm.  There is a 10k route and a 5k route available, both rated 1B, on cement and granite trails.
