Zilker Metropolitan Park

Patrons will enjoy a huge variety of activities at Zilker Park. You can check out the hike and bike trails, picnic facilities, Zilker Botanical Garden, canoe rentals, soccer fields, sand volleyball courts, riverboat rides on Town Lake, concerts, festivals and even a miniature train. The wide-open stretches of grass in this park are just minutes from the downtown area. There is plenty of room and various diversions for the kids, so you can get a suntan, take long walks by the river or just curl up with a book down by the river.

Zilker Botanical Garden

These 22 amazing acres overlook the Zilker Park fields bordering Barton Springs Road. The garden is actually comprised of several different gardens, including the Cactus and Succulent, Xeriscape, Herb and Fragrance, Rose, Azalea, Butterfly and Taniguchi Gardens. Taniguchi is a beautiful Japanese landscape with a waterfall, running stream, lily ponds and wooden bridges. The lush, peaceful grounds are commonly perused by artists and writers searching for inspiration, and by others just looking for solitude amid the city. See their website for further information.

French Legation Museum

King Louis Philippe ordered Alphonse Dubois de Saligny of France to Austin in 1839 to become the French liaison to the Republic of Texas. He insisted on being called "Count" and built this home on 22 acres of land in 1841. While waiting for building to cease, he was involved in a dispute over pigs and moved to Louisiana. He never returned to Texas and did not spend a single night in this home. In 1848, Dr. Joseph Robertson purchased the home and passed it on through his family for years; in 1949, the State of Texas acquired it. The home has been restored and even houses a French Creole kitchen.

Jester King Brewery

Nestled in a farmhouse in Ceres Park Ranch, Jester King Brewery is a microbrewery that creates brews with strong flavors. Noted for using organic ingredients, Jester King has even received the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) certification. The brews produced here feature unique names: Black Metal, Commercial Suicide, Le Petit Prince, Viking Metal, Bonnie the Rare, Wytchmaker and more. Take a tour around the brewery to get acquainted with their brewing process, and end your trip to Jester King Brewery with a tasting session of their delicious libations.

Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park

From challenging trails for mountain bikes to scenic paths along a lovely creek to an off-leash spot where dogs can run free, you'll find something for everyone at Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park! Bring the family during the summer to take a dip in the public pool. For a memorable day date bring a picnic and have lunch beside the water. And of course adrenaline seekers will love biking over hills or playing a game on one of the softball fields.
