Championship or Disc Golf, Fishing on the Lake, and Austin’s Best Hike-and-Bike Trails
Silver Oak is bordered by the hike-and-bike trails, shaded picnic areas and children’s playscape of Forest Oaks Park. Forest Oaks Park also features two swimming pools, trails, and a large clubhouse available for special events and meetings. A disc golf course located on the nearby Liberty Walk Greenbelt is perfect for an afternoon of fun with friends, while Avery Ranch Golf Club, a championship 18-hole course situated nearby in the Texas Hill Country, is relished by traditional golfers.
Less than five minutes away, the 90-acre Brushy Creek Lake Park features a playground, splashpad, hike-and-bike trail, nature trail, exercise station, three pavilions, picnic tables and BBQ grills, as well as a sand volleyball court, canoe/kayak launch, wildlife observation area, a labyrinth, and restrooms. Pavilions can be rented for parties and special events. Locals also love the park’s 38-acre lake for fishing and non-motorized boating.
“The parks in this area are simply the best in Austin,” says Smith. “The hike-and-bike trails are fantastic!”
