In November 2011, Zilker Botanical Garden was recognized by the Austin Parks Foundation with two APF Grants:
AAGC was awarded a grant of $20,275 to fund repairs to the Lotus Pond and Patio Pond in the Taniguchi Japanese Garden
The Garden Club of Austin Fern Team was awarded a grant of $10,820 to fund creation of new shade beds in the fern garden
These two grants confirm that the Austin Parks Foundation continues to embrace Zilker Botanical Garden as a treasured Austin landmark.
