Many people and companies have moved to Austin for a quality of life enhanced by pristine waterways and extensive greenbelts for hiking, biking, and running. At 351 acres, Zilker Park is the city's largest and connects to Lady Bird Lake's hike and bike trail. There's a parking fee on weekends. Every year Austin City Limits, Fun Fun Fun Fest, and the Kite Festival bring thousands of Austinites to these rolling green grounds. A botanical garden at its heart cultivates
native Texas blooms in the temperate climate year round.

A lovely park. It has everything you need in a park. I reccommend going to swim in the springs & canoeing. Also, during the summer, they have free musicals at their outdoor theater.
