Bike Hutto Finds a Home in Creekside Park through Local Adopt-A-Spot Program

Bike Hutto Adopt A Spot Program_2015

In January, Bike Hutto became one of the first Hutto organizations to get involved with the Adopt-A-Spot program.  This City of Hutto program is a way for residents to get involved in taking care of the community.  Groups can “adopt” different city roadways, parks, and other areas around town by organizing trash clean ups, landscaping, and other ways to ‘Keep Hutto Beautiful’.  The organization makes a two-year time commitment with a minimum of four clean-up and/or beautification projects per year.

“We were very pleased to receive Creekside Park as our “spot” in the program. So many of us ride the Cottonwood Creek Trail that passes through the park. This was a way for us to help make the area even more beautiful and make an impact in the community. Creekside Park now feels like home and there is a real sense of pride.” says Bike Hutto founder, Jessica Romigh.

Adopt a Spot - Bike HuttoThe bicycling organization has had three Adopt-A-Spot events at Creekside so far this year. In March, they had one of their events in conjunction with the City of Hutto Arbor Day and were one of the volunteer groups that helped in the planting of 24 trees along the trail.  In April, Bike Hutto did a trash clean up in the park as part of Hutto’s Big Event.  Following the severe Memorial Day floods, a clean-up day was scheduled in June to help with all the debris that had floated into the park when it was underwater.  In addition to liter and debris clean up, there are plans to do some native Texas landscaping surrounding picnic areas in the future.

On Saturday, July 25 at 9am, Bike Hutto will be doing a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony of the new sign that officially designates Creekside Park as being adopted by Bike Hutto.  Following the ribbon cutting, volunteers will participate in liter pickup throughout the park and then bike to downtown Hutto for lunch.

Creekside Park is located at 305 Orchard Way, along the Cottonwood Creek Trail.  The park contains two playscapes, as well as practice fields, picnic tables, grills, and bathrooms.
