    Came here for ACL. This has to be one of the cleanest, large park that holds festivals. The effort to keep it clean throughout the festival was amazing.

    Nice spot to escape the city, but you never feel too far away thanks to the amount of trash and highway noise. Hike off the trail to find the cave if you dare

    A good out and back 15 mile total trail. Wear a shoe with good traction. The moss on the rocks in the middle are slick. Best times to visit are April-June.

    People, pick up your dog's excrement. Seriously. You don't deserve the companionship of a pet if you're not responsible enough to do so simple a task.

    Look closely for a canary trained in the art of falconry. I was skeptical when first training him, but he was a fast learner.

    For a refreshing afternoon, Zilker Park is the way to go. Go for a ride in the Zilker Zephyr, row a canoe or take a dip with the locals in Barton Springs Pool. It's 68F (20C) all year round! Read more

    Less and less of a fan of ACL and the Trail of Lights shutting down Zilker for three plus months. Also, the city inconsistently and sporadically charges for parking on weekends. Fantastic otherwise.

    Zilker is the best officially off-leash dog park in Austin. It may be the best anywhere, assuming your dog won't just take off running (there aren't fences here).

    If you plan to canoe or kayak be advised that you need proper attire. If you kayak your butt will be soaked. Running shorts are your best bet since they dry quickly.
