One of the greatest things about Austin is our perpetually sunny weather, allowing visitors and natives alike to experience some of the best outdoor activities in town. One of these activities? Strolling through the best Austin parks and gardens. With rolling hills, several lakes, the Greenbelt and plenty of designated space for public parks, there are plenty of places to commune with nature and art, whether you’re looking to challenge yourself with one of the best hikes in Austin or to explore an up-and-coming neighborhood. From the heights of Mount Bonnell and the shores of Lake Austin to wildflowers stretching as far as the eye can see, these are the best Austin parks and gardens to explore and enjoy in the city.
