100 Years of Zilker

In 2017, Zilker Park celebrates its centennial anniversary. For 100 years, Zilker Park has been the crown jewel of the Austin parks system - from the great lawn to Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Hillside Theater to the Nature and Science Center, the playground to the Sunshine Camps, the park is home to so much that makes Austin, Austin.

In honor of this important anniversary and the contribution of 350 acres of private land Andrew Zilker made to our city, we invite you to join us this year for events and activities throughout the park. Together we’ll ensure that Zilker Park will be enjoyed by Austinites and visitors alike for generations to come.
