25 Year Anniversary of the opening of Lakeway City Park!

Christmas at the old Volkswagen

For many years the old abandoned Volkswagen, hidden away under a huge cliff in Hamilton Greenbelt II was decorated for Christmas.
‚ÄčThis beautiful tradition was initiated by wonderful and joyous couple living in Lakeway; sadly their names have been lost to history. The couple were rarely seen, the old Volkswagen would magically be decorated one day. Many others contributed to the decorations, but this one couple took the lead. The couple also decorated the Volkswagen for other holidays including: Easter, July 4'th, Halloween, & Thanksgiving.

The tradition continued circa 1995 - 2008 until the bureaucracy decided that the old Volkswagen was unsafe and the old car was cut up and removed from the Greenbelt. Sadly, except for the pictures below, no records remain of this wonderful and joyous traditon or the couple who initiated this beautiful tradition.
