1. Zilker Metropolitan Park

Nestled right in Austin, Zilker Metropolitan Park is a 351-acre park that’s a favorite amongst locals. You can enjoy all kinds of outdoor recreation—from swimming in the Barton Springs Pool to playing some sand volleyball—as well as catch one of the park’s many special events. During peak season, you will have a $5 parking fee, but other than that, most activities are free or low-cost.

2. Movies in the Park

The Austin Parks Foundation and the Alamo Drafthouse—a famous Austin movie theater—partner together to put on the Movies in the Park series. You can catch some family favorites for free! All you have to bring is a blanket and picnic dinner. Be sure to check out the Austin Parks Foundation website for movie dates and times.

3. Hamilton Pool

Austin’s Hamilton Pool is a city-favorite place to cool off in one of the area’s natural spring pools (also called swimming holes). The area around Hamilton Pool is just beautiful—limestone surroundings with a 45-foot waterfall that gently feeds the swimming hole. You can also do a little hiking around the pool.

4. Mount Bonnell

Interested in hiking? Consider climbing Austin’s Mount Bonnell—located right next to the Colorado River. The top of the mountain offers some of the best views in Austin—well worth the climb up the seemingly endless stairs. Bring a picnic and spend some time at the top!
