OVER 100 YEARS OF ICONIC

Zilker Park


In 1917, Andrew Jackson Zilker donated the first portion of land that would become Zilker Park in 1934.

Today, the beloved 350-acre park is where Austinites go to access the Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail, compete on the sports fields, feel the holiday spirit during Trail of Lights, see a local production at Zilker Hillside Theatre and much more.

Zilker's Great Lawn is the home to the infamous Austin City Limits Music Festival. Austinites flock to Barton Springs Pool to cool off on hot summer days. The Austin Nature and Science Center's dino pits are a big hit with families.

We could go on and on about all the fabulous features of Zilker Park, but why don't you discover your own adventure?
