The statue is located on a great walking path that borders Town Lake. It is located south of downtown and the city makes a beautiful backdrop for great photo ops. Wear enclosed waking shoes for best comfort as the path is smooth dirt and gravel....More

I walked from my hotel to here and sat down and looked over the city. It is amazingly peacefull here. Gonna come back here again next time.

But if your pushed for time, you can miss it. Nice stroll in the park, great view of the city, and a place for the true fans to have a religious experience, right where SRV would hold court so many times.

It's on the town lake hike and bike trail on the south side of the river. An Austin gem and a must see.

We had a lovely bike ride along the river and came across the Stevie Ray Vaughan Statue. Even though it was blistering hot, we enjoyed the route, it would be more enjoyable in slightly cooler temperatures. recommend it for all cycling enthusiasts

Quirky and a bit difficult to get to because of the parking you'll appreciate it after you're there. The waterfront park where it's located is beautiful with great views of Austin and lots of activity on the waterfront. Definitely a must see in Austin.
