Wonderful park for strolling, walking the dog or walking/biking along the 10 mile paved hike and bike trail that is located along the shores of beautiful Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin.
Whether you want to go exercise, have a picnic, swim, play some sports, kayak or canoe or just go on a peaceful or romantic walk, Zilker Park is one of the coolest places in Austin to do it.

There are always wonderfully beautiful display gardens, swings in the arboretum, nature trails, an art studio, coffee shop, gift shop, play / learning areas for kids and more.
It was a relaxing kind of park/venue, neat stone work, cobbled paths, fountains, a turret to climb up for a 360° view AND a nesting owl (she apparently comes back every year).

Enjoy a quiet morning with a jog or just a walk to enjoy nature - watch getting the kayaks ready for the day or the swans gliding around looking for a meal.
But is also such a lush park with lots of trees, wild flowers, the river and lots of wild life to appreciate.

I use to play in the waterfalls, pools and explore the caves as a teenager and I was ALWAYS taken in by the beauty of the unusual plants and trees in this nature valley.
The park is small and intimate and you get to see a lot of wild life.

We stumbled upon this gem after having a day planned at the park being rained out.
The interactive nature of the aquarium made it a very special experience for all of us.

A lovely little spot to go for a nice walk in nature.
A more western landscape than many of the parks on the river.

One of Austin's best kept secrets is Bull Creek Park and the hiking trails leading from it, stretch for miles alongside the shores of Bull Creek.
We all had a great time and enjoyed the water and nature.

The Shoal Creek Hike & Bike Trail runs through the park and provides easy access to neighborhoods north and south.
We took a two mile hike along Shoals Creek to Pease Park and a 15-minute stop at the bathroom and the sprinklers recharged our 7-year old (and us) and made the hike back seem absolutely easy!

This hike took us approximately 4 hours, but my grandson stopped a lot to pick up rocks, walk in the creek, and enjoy nature, plus I had to stop to take photos.

Tie on your hiking boots or tennis shoes, grab a bottle of water, find your walking stick and drive to this walking trail just off 360/2222 on your way to Emma Long City Park.
I highly recommend this place to all nature and dog lovers.
