Want to share your ideas about how Austin should develop the shoreline park along the Butler Trail between the now-under-construction boardwalk and Longhorn Dam, east of Interstate 35?

The Trail Foundation and City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department will host a workshop from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 17 at the Montopolis Recreation Center, 1200 Montopolis Drive.

The 1.5-mile stretch of trail that meanders through that area is evolving, and when the boardwalk opens in 2014, it’s sure to draw a lot more runners, walkers and bicyclists.

Input gathered at the meeting will be used to help prioritize public improvements funded through The Trail Foundation, the Parks and Recreation Department or other groups.

If you can’t attend the meeting, you can still toss in your two cents by taking a survey at .
