Money really does grow on trees! They save you money in very tangible ways and a tree in front of a house increases a home’s sales price by an average of $7,130. If that tree is part of a beautiful, well-kept landscape, it can increase a home’s value by 6 to 11%! 

Luckily for Austinites, we have TreeFolks, a local non-profit, that provides education, restoration and volunteerism. TreeFolks has engaged thousands of volunteers to plant more than 2.8 million trees in Central Texas. They offer fun, family-friendly, and free Tree ID Walks to teach our community how to identify the trees that we see around us every day. Tree ID walks are held throughout Austin.  Sapling Days began more than 15 years ago as a way to celebrate planting season. They give away a thousand baby trees each year.

Barton Springs Pool

The pool measures three acres in size and is fed from underground springs with an average temperature of 68-70 degrees, ideal for year-round swimming. 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 1970s.

Deep Eddy Pool 

Deep Eddy is a freshwater swimming pool. The water is cleaned out and replaced with fresh well water every day on alternating sides of the pool, 

The 600,000-gallon concrete pool is surrounded by grass and trees, and in the spring it is quiet – devoid of the splashing children, flying floatation devices and gleeful screams of summer.

Lake Travis

Lake Travis is a BIG lake. It’s 63.75 miles long, has over 271 miles of shoreline. It’s also the the most commercially active reservoir in the state. It’s crystal clear blue waters offer tons of recreation activities and lake related businesses. Most Austin locals find and bookmark their “go to” spots and activities on the lake.

Lake Austin

Most of the shoreline around Lake Austin is privately owned, which limits bank fishing. Two excellent concrete public boat ramps are available: the Walsh Boat Landing, located off Lake Austin Blvd., and a ramp below the Loop 360 bridge.. Emma Long Metropolitan Park is located 6.2 miles off FM 2222 on City Park Road. The park is on the shores of Lake Austin, and consists of a total of 1150 acres, 70 of which are developed.
