Waller Creek Park is the definition of a gem in the middle of Austin. This carefully constructed park has five unique sections that follow Waller Creek. These sections are Waller Delta & Pontoon Bridge, Palm Park, The Narrows, The Refuge, and Waterloo Park. This beautiful public space traverses’ urban landscapes and combines the downtown feel with nature and local artwork.

These five parks each offer a visitor a new experience they will come to admire. The history of Waller Creek goes back to the 1800s when Texas was its own country. Through the test of time water still flows through its narrow passageways seeing Austin grow around it. Today, through a partnership with the city and a conservancy group, this area is now protected for public use. This 37-acre chain of parks has the essence of Austin with a grand vision and a spirit that is whole of Austin Texas.
