Lady Bird Lake

Lady Bird Lake

Formerly Town Lake

Lady Bird Lake is a reservoir of the Colorado River that cuts through the middle of Austin, just south of downtown. It is bordered by the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail which features a mile long boardwalk on the lake's southern rim. It was known as Town Lake until 2007 when it was renamed in honor of former First Lady Lady Bird Johnson who was committed to transforming the lake into a fun and beautiful recreation area. The lake and trail both offer amazing views of the Austin skyline. In addition to the scenic views, the lake offers a multitude of fun activities for all ages including kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, fishing and more. For those who want to stay dry, Zilker Park borders the lake and offers sand volleyball courts, music venues and other activities.
