Zilker Park

Zilker Park has certainly gotten enough facelifts to make it one of the most state-of-the-art parks in Austin. We especially enjoy the springy, space-age flooring that doesn't hurt as much as sand or rocks when you fall on it. Check out the huge plastic playscape that will have your kids running over and through it faster than a hamster trying to find a sunflower seed. Children 4 to 40 can find more than an inch of fun in one of these gaily colored miles of equipment.
