Best Eastside Outdoor Fix

Roy G. Guerrero Colorado River Park

This hidden treasure, full of potential, has been overlooked for too long. There is a back entrance with trails that practically connect to the tail end of the Ladybird Lake trail. The city has just completed a renovation of the woods into an expansive and shady disc golf course. And we are now publicly outing the real treasure of the park, Secret Beach, which has been overrun in recent summers, anyway. This sandy banked bend of the river below the dam is perfect for doing what Austinites do best, hanging out and swimming.
