Givens has been well-loved since it became a park in the 1950s. On November 15, 1962, Oak Springs Park was renamed to "Givens Park" after Dr. Everett H. Givens "as a lasting memorial to the life and labors of the great and beloved Everett H. Givens, one of the fine improvements near and dear to his heart should be remembered by his name" (Austin City Council minutes, p. 2, Nov. 15, 1962).

We would love to know how Givens Park has had a positive impact on your life. Please share with us a fond memory of your time in the park.
