General Information

The Austin Parks and Recreation Department has been the trusted steward of the City of Austin’s public lands since 1928. As such, we protect and maintain parkland and our urban forest. We preserve trails, and offer a variety of sports, recreation, educational enrichment, arts programs, cultural opportunities, nature and aquatic activities.

The purpose of the Parks and Recreation Department is to provide, protect and preserve a Park System that promotes quality recreational, cultural and outdoor experiences for the Austin community.

In general, all parks are open for public use each day from 5am - to 10pm unless otherwise posted.
