There is undeveloped land owned by Austin Parks and Rec that will be developed into parkland. This includes 2.2 acres along Patton Lane and Mira Loma and a historic pecan grove along 51st Street, near 183. The neighborhood association is also maintaining a small planting area along the median at Berkman and 290, across from El Rancho, thanks to a grant from Keep Austin Beautiful.
