    It's so large that it's usually empty so bring a blanket and spread out. I love to bring coloring books and a lemonade. You're also bound to meet quite a few dogs as they're off leash.

    Venue for kite festival each year. Check out the lighting of the Christmas tree in December each year. Free movies and shows at the Zilker outdoor theater. Plus dont miss Barton Springs pool!

    Zilker Park is the site of a lot of Austin's big events, but when it's not booked, it's a beautiful place to stretch and take it in the city. Read more

    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.

    Live your summer here. Lounge under a tree, play with your dog, listen to blues, run into friends, play pick up soccer or ultimate frisbee as the day wanes and the lights of the city guide you home.

    Absolutely love this park. It's huge & has off leash areas for your dog. Great place to bring a picnic as well! Lots of restaurants near by and even trails to go for a run/bike ride on!

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