Best of Austin: No Pasture Greener

"Best of Austin" 2013 is coming. Let's look back at some previous bests.

Best of Austin: No Pasture Greener

Not all Best of Austins are created equal. These are the champs that have us singing every year.

With a whopping 43 awards, Zilker Park has won an award in every category except Best Actress. Probably because it hosts our festivals and our sports and our music, as was noted in here in 2005:

Best Outdoor Public Space: Zilker Park

Home to Austin's annual holiday Trail of Lights, the ACL Fest, and Barton Springs, Zilker holds a mighty hunk of Austin bragging rights. Everyday features include a disc-golf course, fields for soccer, and plenty of wide-open spaces for family, friends, and canine pals to frolic. It also invites relaxation with ample tree shade, gigantic rock formations to sprawl out on, ducks and turtles to observe, and an outdoor theatre. One question remains: What are you doing in front of that TV set when you could be out enjoying Zilker Park?!

Zilker Park, 2100 Barton Springs Rd., 512/974-6700 www.cityofaustin.org/zilker
