Waterloo Greenway is a 1.5-mile park system with the power to bring the entire Austin community together. Once complete, the 35 acres of connected green space – meandering from 15th St. along downtown’s eastern edge to Lady Bird Lake – will be home to a wild array of natural and cultural destinations. Amid epic gardens and rolling pathways, and a twinkling Waller Creek that links them, the environment, arts, health, and adventure will converge — and nourish authentic and uplifting experiences that reflect our city’s diversity.
As Chief Executive Officer of the Waterloo Greenway Conservancy, Peter Mullan leads the Conservancy in its mission to create an extraordinary chain of parks along a restored Waller Creek, in partnership with the City of Austin, for the benefit of all. Under his leadership since 2015, the Conservancy has raised over $158M in public and private funds towards design and construction, and in 2017 broke ground on the first phase or the project at Waterloo Park. Prior to his role with Waterloo Greenway he served as Executive VP of Friends of the High Line from 2004-2014. Mullan was responsible for all aspects of the physical development of the High Line, including planning, design, construction, and collaboration with the City of New York. An architect by training, from 1997 to 2004, Peter was a designer at Polshek Partnership Architects (now Ennead Architects), where he led a series of master planning and design projects for universities and cultural institutions.
