West Austin Neighborhood Park


06.15.16 Posted in NW by

West Austin Neighborhood Park (1317 W 10th Street) is a three acre Clarksville-area park with interesting topography and a bit of a skyline view. It’s hilly landscape gives a nice little running challenge. Running out and back on the sort of U-shaped perimeter (plus out and backs on the mixed-surface walkways through the middle) twice yields one mile.

There is a dog park here and a pretty swimming pool (open 1pm-6pm Tuesday-Sunday currently), along with a playground and picnic areas. Ample street parking is available, and the park was heavily trafficked by dog walkers when I visited yesterday. Even though there’s not a huge area to run here, the scenery makes it worth the visit in my opinion.

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.
