Southeast Austin gained 21 acres of recreational green space Saturday, with Skyline Park opening at 7800 Apogee Boulevard in Easton Park, a 3,200-acre subdivision at William Cannon Drive and McKinney Falls Parkway near the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

Skyline Park, which Canadian developers Brookfield Residential broke ground on in 2022, has highly localized features including skyline views of downtown, an elevated crosswalk modeled after Austin's Pennybacker Bridge, and Singing Mountain, a sculpture by local artist and architect Nicholas DeBruyne. There's also a splash pad, an open lawn, and two playgrounds.

The Easton Park subdivision is part of a Southeast Austin growth wave that was set off by the 2012 construction of the nearby Circuit of the Americas race track and facilities and accelerated by Tesla's various developments in the area. Plans for the community include 12,000 homes; 350 acres of pathways, parks, green space; and 13.1 miles of planned trail systems. About 2,500 of the homes have been built so far.
