10 Best Austin Recreational Activites

  • 4801 La Crosse Ave, Austin • Circle C
    Cindy Hawkins - I love Lady Bird Johnson wildflower center and actually organized a group outing for my office staff. The catering was excellent and the ambience was beautiful, as expected!
    Liz Stella - A year-round schedule of outdoor events for all the family, surrounded by wonderful native plants and beautiful landscaped gardens. I adore this place and membership is highly recommended so you can make regular visits. Fortlandia is a particular highlight for active littles to run around in a safe space!
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - hours of fun with flowers for the whole family. We normally have a membership to this place.

  • 3401 Redbud Trail, Austin • Tarrytown
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - born and raised in this city, I can saw for sure, this still is the best dog park in Austin.
    Ryan Burke - The best dog park in Austin (in my opinion). Not the most convenient park to reach, but the isle is doggy heaven.

    Its actually a small peninsula on the lake rather than an island, but its a nice place for people to relax as much as it's a dog park.

    Usually fairly busy. I have never had a bad experience with people or their pooches here. Most are kept on a leash.

    Some of the more "advanced" trained dogs will be catching frisbees and tennis balls in acrobatic fashion, otherwise most are enjoying the lake/ sunshine.

    A must see if you have dogs and have never been.
  • 1100 Kingsbury St, Austin • University of Texas
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - a mega huge bungee rope ball for kids to play in. The city spent a few million in upgrading the park.
    Julio Martinez - My family loves the new space and how clean it is. Wonderful getaway in the city.
  • 2418 Stratford Dr, Austin • Tarrytown
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - Rent kayaks, canoes & stand-up paddle boards around Town Lake.
  • 6211 Park Road 4 S Burnet
    Julie Joyce - Great activity for all ages. The walking cavern tour is about 90 minutes. The tours run every 15 minutes and the guide will give you a great history lesson about the caverns as you go through, as well as pointing at the super cute bats residents. There is a picnic area, historic buildings you can walk through and lots of trails to explore.
  • 3800 Mt Bonnell Rd, Austin • Tarrytown
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - nice hike up to see views of Austin. One of the most iconic spots.
    Julio Martinez - Great spot took our engagement pictures here. Beautiful views.
  • 1820 S Lakeshore Blvd, Austin • East Riverside
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - walk, bike, or jog over the water!
  • 8822 McCann Dr. Austin • North Shoal Creek
    Julie Joyce - A fun place to take the kids in the middle of the Texas summer, or really any time. They have supports you can rent for the novice skaters, and they do different activities during the skating time; races, limbo, etc. We have been to a few birthday parties here, and they do a good job keeping everything running smoothly.
  • 907 W Slaughter Ln, Austin • Southpark Meadows
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - Largest park in south Austin. Wooded walking trails around a creek. Frisbee golf too. 2 little kid playgrounds too and much more.
  • 1600 City Park Rd, Austin
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - Only place to get in water and watch boats going by. Open year around, this park is a green oasis hidden in the middle of metropolitan Austin. The entrance fee is just a few bucks. You can come for a picnic on the shores of Lake Austin, dip your toes in the water, go for a swim and stay overnight in a primitive campsite
