Park District

The best hiking in Austin is right next door.

When Onion Creek Metropolitan Park is right next door and McKinney Falls State Park is less than four miles away, you have acres to play on. In fact, of the 670-acre Park District, 120 acres will actually be on-site in Goodnight. Located just north of Goodnight, the park will be connected to the community by a three-mile trail system. It might be time to buy a new pair of walking shoes.

Giving back to the community.

The Goodnight team will develop 120 acres adjacent to 550-acre Onion Creek Metropolitan Park to create a newly-established Park District. This district will provide meaningful park space for the entire Austin community to enjoy. Improvements to the Park District will include a dog park, multiple playscape areas, horseback riding trails, and a great lawn larger than Zilker Park. The first 50 acres of improvements to the park will be completed by 2018.
