Edward Rendon Sr. Metro Park at Festival Beach


02.10.14 Posted in Central by

Edward Rendon Sr. Metro Park at Festival Beach is located at 2101 Jesse E. Segovia Street in Central Austin. The trail here makes up part of the Lady Bird (Town) Lake Trail, so you can choose whatever distance you want and just keep going and going on this unpaved trail along the water. This a really pretty, tree-filled spot that was especially peaceful on the overcast day I visited.

Many ducks and just a few dog walkers shared to park with me this day. Ample parking lots are available here, as are playgrounds, sports fields, picnic tables and shelters, and a pool.

This poem stands next to a beautiful 182 grove of trees dedicated to those whose names are memorialized on the other side of the marker.

This blog chronicles my journey to run in every park in Austin. As an outdoor enthusiast, admirer of wildlife, and ultramarathoner who’s completed more than 35 distance races around the country, I explore our great green spaces while combining that with my fitness pursuits.
