About Us

Friends of Brentwood Park was formed as a result of participation in the City of Austin Green Neighbor Challenge program in 2009 in which the Crestview Neighborhood achieved Green Neighborhood status. Founders Emily Wilson and Hedrich Michaelsen signed an Adopt-A-Park agreement with Austin Parks and Recreation and spearheaded the group’s first park workday in December 2009 and neighbors from both the Crestview and Brentwood neighborhoods and beyond came out on that chilly morning to spread mulch. The rest is history…

Friends of Brentwood Park does not have a formal membership structure at this time. We meet as needed and all of us wear many hats. We welcome additional volunteers on the Leadership Team. We especially need volunteers with experience in grant writing, project planning, working with city staff, etc.

Current leadership team:

  • Hedrich Michaelsen
  • Emily Wilson
  • Kat Correa
  • Denman (Glober) Netherland
  • Marie Taylor
  • Elaine Dill
  • Dave Shulder
