Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

HOPE Outdoor Gallery, also known as Castle Hill for the fortress-like structure perched at the top, is Austin’s premier family-friendly intro to street art. Arm your kids with paint, brushes and/or spray cans and allow them to paint to their hearts’ desire (but please be responsible and protect their lungs with a safety mask). Or simply take a walkthrough and pique their creative interests by watching countless talented muralists render large-scale pieces. On a clear day or during a striking sunset, a quick climb to the top will reveal one of the best panoramic views of the city skyline—great for family photos! A couple of cautions: With its convenient proximity to downtown (just a few blocks northwest of the city’s most bustling areas), HOPE has become a massive tourist attraction, sometimes overrun with reckless adolescents on the weekend. Regardless of what day you visit, close supervision is recommended—there are quite a few uneven surfaces and crags that could be perilous for particularly peppy children.
