Stretching along the Colorado River in the heart of Austin, Town Lake Park is truly one of the city's finest treasures. The 10-mile hike and bike trail is always populated with joggers and cyclists, baby buggies, and happy dogs. At any point along the trail, outdoor adventures await - from the many ball fields at Fiesta Gardens to the swimming holes Deep Eddy and Barton Springs. When dogs aren't busy with their puppy play dates in Auditorium Shores, the space is often home to concerts and festivals.
