A beautiful area to talk a stroll or work up your heart beat... you will see joggers, kids playing, dog walkers, and many rowing teams on the lake.

“Water Sports”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

While you are in Austin make sure you take an afternoon to do some water sports. I personally did stand up paddle boarding. It was my first time and it was a great work out and fun to boot. They have just about everything, kayaking, paddle boats, paddle boarding and anything else you can think of.
