Do you want to know where the national news agencies set up to do their interviews with the Austin downtown skyline in the background? This is the place. Bike or take a walk across the well-designed pedestrian walkways on this side of Lady Bird Lake and you'll understand why the natives are so crazy about their inland city. Sadly, I... More

great statue of him but it's unmarked (unless I missed something?). we were taking pictures and 2 people came up to me and asked who it was. a nice bronze marker with some identifying info might be nice for those who would like to learn and enjoy some local culture.

Very pretty in a pretty location. If you like SRV you should stop by and check out the statue. Our tour guide was well informed and told us a lot about him that we didn't know.

This excellent statue of SRV stands next to the river (a/k/a Town Lake) overlooking downtown, guitar in hand. It's a bit hard to find, but well worth the trouble to get a picture, before heading over to Willie Nelson Blvd to snap one of HIS statue! Austin takes its music (and musical heroes) seriously!

As huge SRV fans, it has been a dream of ours for years to see the statue and pay homage. It was sweltering the day we drove through Austin and stopped to see the statue. It was easy to locate once we got our bearings and was worth it.

Was great to see this. The surrounding areas where well maintained, but it was hot. That takes nothing away from our visit and the scenery.

A must see for true fans. A beautifully done statue honoring him. The shadow is a pretty cool addition to the piece.

It's a little hard to find this memorial to a great Bluesman. I was lucky to see him perform in 1986 at Expo 86. I've been a fan ever since. This is a fitting tribute.

Being from Oak Cliff during the time that Stevie grew up and watching him grow to fame makes my heart feel good that they honor the greatest guitar player ever with this statue. It is in a beautiful setting in the park.
