Our local oasis flaunts a beauty that redefines Texas for many visitors. Pair this amazing setting with a blanket, swimsuit, and picnic basket, and have a first class meal with Mother Nature. There are six picnic areas spread out around the park with barbecue pits and tables, and activities to enjoy after your meal like swimming at Barton Springs or strolling through the free Botanical Gardens. So, eat, be merry, and make good use of Colonel Zilker's gift of 351 acres to the city he loved.
