Take your time in the treasure. There is so much to discover, and it changes constantly. Bring a can or two of paint and leave your own mark. So cool of Austin to have a eclectic place like this. Very fun. You will find something to entertain and amuse you.

This is the type of thing you don't see often. It's a large outdoor area with some cement walls/structures where anyone and everyone has participated in a massive graffiti mural. The art is everywhere... on the metal drainage tubing on the ground, on the walls, the garbage cans, etc. Apparently it's normal for someone to paint something and then someone... More

No trip to Austin is complete without a trip to this abandoned construction area where artists of all skills and ages contribute. The more I looked the more I saw. I was a little sad that some of the best pieces were scribbled over by less talented artist (some "free-range children" where running rampant with spray cans when I was... More

Daughter and I had an amazing time looking through all of the graffiti art. Take time to really look through the art and take your spray can so you can create some of your own art. We were there for two hours taking photos and just enjoying the outdoor gallery in the rain which made it so much more special.

The area is nice for a quick visit. Don't expect too much because you will have to look around to find a good quality graffiti piece. Anyone can literally come & draw whatever they like on another's artwork. But just make sure not to come when it just finished raining. The ground is very wet & smudgy since there was... More

Visited with my sister this past February. We had a great time and even got in a work out climbing around viewing all the graffiti work. We even saw some artists working on new pieces. It was a very nice out of the box activity that we are glad we went to! There is so much talent in that one... More

Arriving for the first time at the lower entry gate to the HOG is mind boggling. What a wonderful concept. This is the only outdoor paint park in the United States and has become one of Austin's top ten art attractions. Whether you have a few minutes or a few hours, you owe it to yourself to swing by this... More

If it wasn't for friends that are locals we would never have known about this place. You can just show up, bring your own spray paint if you want to "tag", and go at it. Be sure to wear clothes you don't mind getting paint on.

It is certainly worth a walk up the hill from Lamar to see this place. The graffiti/murals are colorful and fun enough if not really remarkable. The view is good on a nice day. This place has potential which has not yet been realized.

Very inspiring. Neat place to visit. Wear tennis shoes. The hills get a little steep. I was very glad we stopped. My daughter loved it and looked at every pic. I just wish we would have brought some paint for her to do her own picture
