These are the most commonly asked questions we receive on our contact page, in the comments, or in person.
Q: What is the best way to contact someone from Friends of Copperfield Nature Trails?
A: The best way to get in touch with us is through our Contact us! page or message us through Give Pulse online platform: https://givepul.se/k5ryqg
Q: Where is the Copperfield trail and park?
A: Visit the City of Austin, Texas parks info and search for “Copperfield”: https://www.austintexas.gov/page/park-directory
an interactive park map is in the process of being improved as of July 2023
Q: Can I reserve the pavilion or part of the trail for an event / party?
A: The city of Austin has not designated our park or trail as a reservable area. As such, you’ll need to treat the park, including the pavilion, as a “first come, first serve” area.
Q: What are the leash laws? Can I have my pet off-leash?
A: According to the city of Austin, there are 12 off-leash areas in several parks throughout the city. Copperfield trails and the adjoining park do not fall under any of these areas. As such, you are required to keep your dog on a leash at all times. For direct information at the City of Austin’s own website, click here.
Q: I’d like to volunteer! How do I go about doing that!
A. We have at least four official volunteer days per year! We partner with both Austin Parks Foundation and Keep Austin Beautiful using Give Pulse https://givepul.se/k5ryqg to recruit volunteers for those events. If you’d like to volunteer on your own, you’re more than welcome to clean up trash and dispose of it properly.
