Commons Ford Ranch Park
One of the great treasures for those of us who live off Cuervavaca Road in the Eanes ISD in west Austin off 2244 Bee Caves Road is a little known oasis called Commons Ford Ranch Metropolitan Park. This quiet sanctuary of towering pecan trees is a great place to relax for a picnic, walk the dogs, do some casual river bank fishing or read a book under a shady pecan tree. In my opinion this is one of the best parks in all of Austin. Serious hikers should go elsewhere though, this is more for strolling and meandering through the pecan grove meadows and turtle watching along the river and creek banks. On a typical day you'll usually only see a few others enjoying the park giving you a sense of peace and space, which is a refeshing break from the busy crowds at the Lady Bird Park Hike and Bike Trails. There is also a boat launch and vollyball net set up. Pack a picnic and use one of the many picnic tables availabe although Allison and I usually just throw a blanket down on a grassy knoll under a shady pecan tree...ahh Texas.
About Commons Ford Ranch Park
Commons Ford Park was formally a working ranch and is 215 acres and has roughly 2.5 miles of trails. It is located at 614 Commons Ford Road, Austin Texas 78733. Sadly, the park is only open between Tuesday through Sunday from 12:00 noon to 6:00PM (closed on Monday's) and this one of the major drawbacks for the park. There is an automatic gate that closes at 6:00PM, so just watch the time when you go. Also there is no swimming in the creek or Lake Austin from the park.
