Lady Bird (Town) Lake

Lady Bird Lake (formerly Town Lake) is Austin’s preeminent lake and located at the northeastern end of Zilker Metropolitan Park. Known for its excellent hiking, biking and running trails (and for providing Austin with a beautiful skyline), Lady Bird Lake is where Austin locals go to relax and soak up some of the beauty of this man-made reservoir.

The biggest in the area and home to a healthy population of large-mouth bass, catfish, carp and sunfish, Lady Bird Lake has a large recreational following. Enormous carp are caught here regularly, and you’ll see sincere locals along the shoreline with bobber and smile in place. A placid and constant-level lake, Lady Bird Lake is ideal for canoeing, fishing and bird-watching for those who don’t indulge in fishing, while photographers can be seen shooting sunsets over two of the lake’s pedestrian-only bridges.
