Austin Parks Foundation launches naming contest for new Zilker Park train!


The Austin Parks Foundation on Tuesday announced a new naming contest for the Zilker Zephyr's replacement. Through Sept. 21, the community is invited to submit suggestions. The winner will be selected in time for the new train in summer 2021.

Name ideas can be submitted online here. The submission page also includes a coloring sheet for kids to use with their name suggestions. The most popular names will be announced at the foundation's Party for the Parks on Sept. 30. Voting will be open at that time for the final selection.
