Govalle Neighborhood Park/Gustavo “Gus” L. Garcia District Park

06.07.14 Posted in NE by

Govalle Neighborhood Park (5200 Bolm Road) has the beginnings of a paved hike/bike trail that is under construction at this time. Right now you can run around the perimeter of the park and get in about .6 miles; it will be better suited for running when the construction is finished. Ample parking is available onsite and there’s a fun foot bridge with a creek view.


Gustavo “Gus” L. Garcia District Park (1101 East  Rundberg Lane) is a large park with a big community center. The center hosts a fun Breakfast with Santa program that our family has enjoyed. There is a lovely garden area that houses the Senior Serenity Garden; a friendly gentleman watering the plants there offered to show me inside the fence and explained that the other garden plots are available to the public for a small rental fee.

Many students use this park to walk to the school across the street. A very pretty unpaved trail runs around the perimeter. It’s a little hilly and less than a mile. On-site parking is easy to find here too.

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.
