Parks & Open Spaces

Mueller’s parks, trails and open space weave through the community, establishing a native, local ecosystem and bringing outdoor recreation and education options to Mueller residents, employees and neighbors. With 20 percent of the neighborhood dedicated to parkland and open space, every resident will live less than 600 feet away from a community greenspace. Mueller parks are open to the public and are host to several community events annually.

Mueller’s park system features:

  • Approximately 140 acres of parks, trails and open space
  • 5-mile hike and bike trail loop at completion
  • At least 15,000 new trees throughout the development
  • Mueller Greenways surround the neighborhood and connects to existing Austin parks including Bartholomew Park, Patterson Park and Morris Williams Golf Course

Mueller’s greenspace will be developed along with the rest of the neighborhood, connecting the many elements of the project as a part of the Mueller vision to create a walkable and sustainable community. Parks and trails include:
