Richard Moya Park - A Rich History

Located in eastern Travis County, Richard Moya Park is named in honor of Richard Moya, Travis County Commissioner from 1970-1986 and the first Mexican-American elected to public office in Travis County. Three spans of the historic 1884 iron Congress Avenue Bridge, once located in downtown Austin, crosses Onion Creek in the park, at the location formerly known as Moore’s Crossing. The park now is a popular location for family picnics, nature study, school outings and bird watching.
