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.

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.

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).

Mount Bonnell (also known as Covert Park at Mount Bonnell) provides an excellent scenic overlook of beautiful Austin, especially at dawn and sunset.
Very nice easy walk overlooking the river below, nice houses on the river and the nature surrounding.
