West Austin and Zilker Park

Zilker Park is Austin's backyard and playground— people go swimming, jogging, and just hang out with a barbecue platter and a beer. West Austin generally refers to the area just west of Lamar Boulevard (not to be confused with West Lake, the area west of Lake Austin). It's a laidback, pleasant neighborhood with great outdoor activities, some of Austin’s largest music festivals, and great local eateries.
