Zilker Metropolitan Park is considered "Austin's most-loved park." This 351-acre metropolitan park is home to a variety of recreation opportunities, facilities and special events for individuals and families
Zilker Park is known as the "jewel in the heart of Austin," and it's easy to see why. It features an enormous, natural spring-fed swimming pool, sculpture garden, stand-up paddle boarding, dinosaurs (at the prehistoric gardens in the botanical garden), and unbeatable views of the Austin skyline.
