Monday Walk: Zilker Park, Austin
Zilker Metropolitan Park is considered “Austin’s most-loved park.” This 351-acre park is home to a variety of recreational activities.
During the weekend, people are playing fetch with their dogs, soccer, fitness camps, and volleyball in this beautiful green field.
The river, lake, trails in Austin post I did a week ago for Jo’s Monday Walk was east side of the city. Last Saturday, we took a walk through the west side, where the Zilker Park is located.
There are a few resting shady spots by the river and along the park trail, where people can take a break from walking or jogging and watch birds.
The Zilker Park was named after its benefactor Andrew Jackson Zilker, who donated the land to the city in 1917. It was developed into the park during the Great Depression in the 1930s.
This week Jo’s takes us to the village of Giverny. You really don’t want to miss it!
Thank you for stopping by. Have a great week 🙂
