    An amazing and lush off leash dog haven not at all far from downtown. Parking is tough, but for good reason.

    My pup loves coming here to run in and out of the trees and swim in the lake. Parking is difficult in the lot, so park afar in the neighborhood and make the hike. Worth the pretty photos of your pup!

    Great place to walk your dogs, socialize them, or let them go for a swim!

    This is the most serene place in Austin. Come by in the early morning hours and snag a spot by the water. It's the perfect place to read a book, take a walk, clear your mind, or simply enjoy the day.

    If you find yourself at the southern end of the isle, check out the rope swing just a short swim across the lake.

    There isn't much parking so your best bet is to bike with your dog or park far away. It's definitely worth taking your dog though. Leash free and plenty of water for those swimming dogs.

    This is NOT the place to put your kayak or paddle board into lady bird lake. It's an off leash dog park. Parking is difficult

    Austin's dog island is an accidentally perfect place for a dog park, hemmed in by the upper end of Lady Bird Lake, where they can go for a dip. The entire park is off-leash.

    Parking here is a real pain in the butt. Avoid the crowds by visiting on a weekday.

    DO NOT PARK IN NO PARKING ZONES. They've been ticketing heavily lately (easy $$ for the city to collect). You've been advised.

    I just asked police officer in unit 8615 if they were going to ticket/tow from the grass & he said only the Fire Zones. Different than what i was told last week.

    Police stopped last week & said they are ticketing & towing even from the grassy area. Talk about predatory...Elk towing is waiting in a parking spot!

    A cop was ticketing at Red Bud this afternoon. I don't see that often, but I think the flooding is causing them to monitor more.

    Bring some towels and leave them in the car, your dog will be totally soaked after playing here. Great location with multiple water entry spots!
