Time Out says

One quality that makes Austin so special is its dedication to preserving green spaces while building up its bustling metropolis around them. One of those many essential spots is the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum, located south of the river at the edge of the Barton Hills neighborhood. With rotating exhibitions in its museum space and four acres of beautifully maintained gardens, ponds and dozens of bronze and stone sculptures donated by notable co-namesake Charles Umlauf (his wife Angeline planted the initial flora), anyone looking for a genuine ATX art-meets-nature experience should make it a point to pop in before or after exploring adjacent Zilker Park and Barton Springs Pool. It’s a perfect spot for an afternoon picnic and/or open-air nap.
