Zilker park and the accompanying trails are one of my favorite reasons to return to Austin every year to visit family. The trails are spacious and hug both sides of the river. There are a few nice bridges for crossing and there are even several spots with bathrooms for those that want to stop before getting back in your car. The views are wonderful for Austin and the trails are easy on the knees. One of the best running trails in the country and really offers gorgeous views of downtown Austin. A must visit for anyone in town who is seeking outdoor time.
Nice park. Lots of space. Restroom showers ,changing rooms has lots of room and open roof. Not much privacy with open showers. Swimming pool gorgeous. Went in fall so very low key crowd.
Really cool place to visit. The swimming area looks great. Lifeguards present, bath house, 68 degree water year around, slow current, diving board/area, inexpensive. Great place to hang out.
Zilker Botanical Garden is a treasure to explore, and great for kids as well as adults. If your children are school aged, this would be a great spot for fun biology and entomology activities! For everyone else, there are beautiful views every time of year, and it's a lovely quiet place to stroll, sketch/photograph, read, or bring tea (no picnics allowed though). Wear sensible walking shoes and note that not all trails are handicap-accessible. Admission is $3.
Great beginner course. Can be closed at times due to festivals. Might have to pay five bucks to play during weekend's. The front nine are better than the back nine imo due to the sound of traffic on back nine. Very popular course, no water, pretty easy course, not as easy as wells branch. Not to bad play if it rains.
One of the best attractive places in Austin city. It was the first time that I visited that city and my experience was great. I enjoyed very much with my family and suggest every one to visit that city for sure. I had no enough time to check out every places in this aria, but the rowing dock club. I suggest surely to do rowing boats for every one because I love it and it's a fantastic adventure and sport.
This is a really nice park. There are trails with beautiful views of the water that are great for walking or jogging. There's plenty of large open space for playing sports or playing with the dogs. You can rent kayaks or canoes to take on the river. There are good places to relax in the shade. Pretty much something for anyone that enjoys the outdoors.
We had a wonderful time at the Festival of Lights. Despite it being brutally cold, there were so many fun activities to do along the way and lots of hot cocoa and warm food to keep us toasty. The price was extremely reasonable I wouldn't even have been upset if it would have been more. The money went to a great cause something if I'm ever back in the area again would totally do!
Bike riding across the park!! 3 hours of so awesome! It was raining, which was fun. Across the river, some good food spots. Can even get to the spring if you have decent enough stamina. And depending on ur starting point. Got to play around a little in the water too. Recommended if you like hiking and biking and visiting Austin.
Had a wonderful time, got to suntan on the rocks. Was the best date day I could have asked for. River was cold but totally refreshing. Would definitely recommend for readily or a date day. Beautifully kept.
Oh my gosh, this place is honestly the best dog park I have ever been to! I take my dogs out here all the time. The people are friendly and willing to share their treats with your dog. They also understand that sometimes dogs don't get along and they won't make a big deal about it. Even if you don't have a dog, you can come out here and hang with your friends and play volleyball or hang out with other people's dogs.
This is a pretty nice park in Austin. You can find lots of great things to do, however if you're planning on visiting Barton Springs I would recommend wearing knee pads, shin guards, ankle braces and swim shoes because we went swimming and had the most uncomfortable time of our lives. The view from the pool is amazing with the Austin Skyline poking out from behind the trees but the slippery, dangerous, moss-covered bottom of the pool was just horrible.
Zilker Park is always and will always have a place in my heart, there are so many things to do and be part of on this massive chunk of land. From hiking around it to head into the Green belt, to relaxing to and evening play in the summer by the Hillside Theater or just being there during the holidays and experiencing the Light tower decorated with it swirly display. Lets also not forget to mention Austin City Limits is held in this park, However be advised that the ACL Festival does trash the park and cause it to close down for almost a month to a month in a half so be mindful during that time of the year you will be deprived of its wonders till it's back to normal, unless your attending said Festival.
Always a great place to visit have a picnic spend some time with kids ,go for a bike ride walk the trails along the park, ride the train or even take a dip in Barton Springs and even enjoy a summer play in the park at the outside theater so much to do so much to see Oh! you can even come out and fly your kite or just come out and bath in the sun what ever you decide to do you can count on having a wonder time at Zilker Park....
Loved the park! People were picnicking, dogs were playing everywhere, kids were having fun, and teams were enjoying volleyball! The grass was green and lush. There is a rock outcropping that both kids and adults equally enjoyed. There is a river nearby that had plenty of paddle boarders and kayakers. Everyone was having a great walking, relaxing, paddling, and playing! And the views of the skyline were wonderful as well. Worth checking out!
I love to take my dog Cooper with me to the park. I usually take him a little before noon. The park will have some dogs but not too many. I really just love this place. The grass is soft so you can walk barefoot and the city skyline reminds you how cool it is to be in such a big green space right in the middle of the city.
Probably the most beautiful metropolitan park I've been to do far in my life. HUGE maybe a hundred acres or more. I took a day booking around the park and didn't even make it to all the cool spots. They have a pool that costs $3 for locals (just be like "ya I'm local"). You can kayak or bike/walk up Barton Creek, what an amazing place.
Great place for family and friends for walking, running, swimming, and summer time outdoor theater, as well as volleyball, soccer, frisbee, and dog walking. Be careful of poison ivy along the Town Lake running and walking and biking trail; it’s easy to miss, just be aware of lots of it. And there is a sprinkler system that got me and the interior of my car totally wet in less than 15 seconds at exactly 9:00pm one evening in May. This is probably a regular occurrence, so beware! Otherwise, Zilker Park is definitely part of the heartbeat of Austin. Go to it!
Wonderful park! Heads up though to those who have never been to Texas or anywhere humid. It's super humid and may be uncomfortable if you're not used to it. Was a lot of fun though! Dog friendly, chance to canoe and swim! Very cold towards the later evening though.
