Just one of the MANY THINGS TO DO in ATX. Statue is on Towne Lake close to the Long Center grounds. (Bathrooms close) Walk over the Lamar Street pedestrian Bridge and then loop back over 1st Street for a walk around Town Lake/Lady Bird Lake.

A wonderful larger than life statue of my guitar hero. Check out the brass cast shadow, which cleverly depicts him playing.

The statue is located in a nice Riverfront Park. There are lots of hiking and biking trails and a dog park. Parking can be difficult to find though
