“Talk about a glow-up! After years of renovation, Waterloo Park finally debuted last summer to become one of the city’s essential gathering hubs. The picturesque new grounds feature the addition of 500 trees and 90,000 plants from 170 different species, plus a darling play space for kids that includes a climbable Log Jam structure and a granite slide. Best of all, the addition of the Moody Amphitheater makes the park feel like a mini ACL Fest—except with much nicer Michael Hsu–designed bathrooms.” – Austin Monthly editors.

Waterloo Park marks the first phase of the 35-acre Waterloo Greenway park system to open. Once complete, the park will stretch from 15th Street to Lady Bird Lake along a restored Waller Creek. Construction on the second phase of the project, The Confluence, will begin later this year.
Restored in partnership with the City of Austin, Waterloo Park is open daily from 5am – 10pm for everyone to explore and enjoy.
