  • Look closely for a canary trained in the art of falconry. I was skeptical when first training him, but he was a fast learner.
  • Check out the largest of Austin's downtown parks. This is a community gathering space like no other in the city and besides, what's not good about a park?
  • Austin's most loved park, and the place to be for, well, whatever it is you like to do outside. If you can't find something to do here, something's wrong.
