    Description: Kids report Reed Park has great swings–shady, and with long, long chains for a good swoop. Children also love to explore the creek and nature trail.

    Across the parking area is a historic construction that inspires speculation. Is it an old oven, perhaps? You might be tempted to climb up for a closer look!

    “Reed Park is a great example of Austin’s successful efforts to protect natural space and beauty in coveted residential and commercial areas,” neighborhood resident Scott K. tells us. “For me personally, my dogs consider Reed Park a little bit of heaven on earth; a place where they can stretch their legs and explore the many sights and smells. Reed Park is a wonderful escape and has been the backdrop of many of my fondest memories since moving back to Austin.”
