Pease District Park offers 42 acres of natural beauty conveniently located near downtown Austin. A part of the Shoal Creek Greenbelt and connected trails, the park also features a number of picnic areas, recreational areas, a playground, and a splash pad. It’s most famous as the site of one of Austin’s favorite annual traditions, Eeyore’s Birthday Party, but it’s a wonderful park for families any time of the year. The park also has a rich and interesting history involving George Custer, Native Americans, and even the gold rush. Read more about Shoal Creek’s history here.
