Why locals recommend it
Zilker Park is where ACL happens, where a great Zilker Christmas Light Show is, where the Stevie Ray Vaughn bronze is. Close enough to Casa Willow and Holly Neighborhood. Google what is happening at Zilker when you come.

Walk around town lake or take a blanket and a picnic down to Zilker park. It is Austin’s version of Central Park.

Barton Springs Pool, Town Lake, and the Lady Bird Hike and Bike trail are joined at the center by the best park to stroll, throw a blanket on the grass, play beach volleyball, or just sit on a bench and people watch.

Great place to walk around and enjoy the park. During the holidays there’s a trail of lights but tickets are required for the light trail.
