Property description

Welcome to The Parkside Cabin. You can enjoy being just a few steps from Zilker Park, under two miles from downtown!
This two bedroom, one bath apartment is wonderfully furnished with everything you could need whether you are coming in town for a long weekend, or a month or two.
There's air conditioning, wifi, a flat screen TV, fully furnished kitchen, one queen bed, two twin beds, a VERY comfy sofa-bed, and even parking for up to three cars (not that you need one!).
Come hang out in Zilker Park, and see what makes Austin so special!


Barton Springs Pool: Within Zilker Park's 358 acres, lies one of the crown jewels of Austin, Barton Springs Pool. Three acres in size, the pool is fed from under ground springs and is on average 68 degrees year round. Over the years, Barton Springs Pool has drawn people from all walks of life, from legislators who have concocted state laws there to free-spirited topless sunbathers who turned heads in the seventies. Even Robert Redford learned to swim at the pool when he was five years old while visiting his mother's relative in Austin. Today, Barton Springs still attracts a diverse crowd of people.

Zilker Park: The Zilker Holiday Tree Stands 155 feet tall and is composed of 39 streamers, each holding 81 multicolored, 25 watt bulbs, totaling 3,309 lights. The Zilker Tree Lighting Ceremony is held annually the first Sunday in December at 6pm.

The Annual Zilker Park Kite Festival is held the first Sunday in March each year.

Enjoy a ride on the Zilker Zephyr miniature train or paddling a canoe on Town Lake. Play on the large multi-age playscape, hike and bike trails and large full-service picnic areas, 6 of which are reservable. For the swimmer, Zilker Park offers Barton Springs Pool, a natural spring-fed pool with a year-round average temperature of 68 degrees.

The sports enthusiast will enjoy the sand volleyball courts, a nine-hole Disc Golf Course, 2 Multi-use Fields.

The park is home to the Zilker Botanical Gardens, which includes the Taniguchi Oriental Garden and the Austin Area Garden Center.
