Austin City Limits (ACL) Live at the Moody Theater with its bronze statue of Willie Nelson out front, is the site of the ACL music TV Show tapings. Across the river via the South 1st Street Bridge in Butler Park is the Long Center for Performing Arts, the venue of the annual “Drop-In Free Summer Concert Series” during the summer season.The city’s largest Zilker Park and the Zilker Botanical Garden is a 360-acre green space in the heart of Downtown and the site of festivals and free music at the Zilker Hillside Theater. Zilker Park is named for millionaire Andrew Zilker who sold the land to the city of Austin in the early 20th century to be used as a public park.

Zilker Park includes the popular Barton Springs Municipal Pool that is fed by 4 natural bubbling springs that remain an invigorating 68-70° temperature year-round. Visitors can lounge in the shade of pecan trees or sunbathe on the grassy banks that line the pool. Over 800,000 visitors annually are attracted to the historical springs and acreage that were purchased in 1837 by William Barton who named 3 of the springs for his daughters. The springs changed ownership many times before the property was purchased by Andrew Zilker in 1901. He sold the springs and a 50-acre parcel to the city in 1917, stipulating usage as a public park and later sold an additional 300 acres that become Zilker Park. The city expanded Barton Springs Pool by damming the springs and adding sidewalks in 1920 and the pool has been a major outdoor attraction since then. Interesting note—renowned actor/director Robert Redford learned to swim at age 5 in Barton Springs Pool!

Deep Eddy began as a swimming hole formed by a boulder eddy in the Colorado River that was developed into a resort with a concrete pool by A.J. Ailers in 1915. Attractions and amenities were added to the original bathing beach, pool, and bathhouse.

Two weeks after the city of Austin bought the property in 1935, a major flood of the Colorado River wrecked the facilities and filled the pool with mud. The pool was cleaned up and bathhouse rebuilt and reopened to the public the following year.

The Colorado River provides Austin’s supply of municipal water. Lady Bird Lake was formed by damming the Lower Colorado River in Downtown Austin. No motorboats are allowed on Lady Bird Lake making it ideal for kayaks, canoes, SUPs, dragon boats (a paddle boat that originated in the Pearl River Delta of China and has been gaining popularity around the world), and paddleboard yoga, a sport enjoyed by Austin residents.

Pontoon boats, ski boats, speedboats, and more run along Lake Austin’s corridors.

Restaurants along the lake offer dock and dine, such as Hula Hut, Abel’s on the Lake, Mozart’s Coffee Roasters, and Emma Long Metropolitan Park has shoreside camping.
