Review of Commons Ford Ranch

Commons Ford Ranch
Ranked #138 of 340 things to do in Austin
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 April 2014

This park is on lake Austin. Free parking. Vollyball net. Dog friendly, bring your cooler and enjoy. There are a few picnic tables, not many, bring your own chair to be safe or a blanket to sit on, some shade exists but not near the lake, as far as swimming , sign says no swimming but people do swim at there own risk. No lifeguards. Some guys fish from the dock so be careful. on the left side of the street are a few trails that follow along a creek and 20 minutes Into it you will end up on a small waterfall. Stay on the trail and you will find it. Free! Totally free!

This park is in our neighborhood. Hence, we are here often. Great place to get out and stretch the legs. It is suppose to be on leash for pets but no one does it. You can get access to Lake Austin for your pets. No human swimming allowed. I like that there is a flat place to walk North of the road and more hills to the South. The main reason I do not give 5 stars are the hours. 12 to 6pm Tuesday-Sunday. Only six hours a day and hard to enjoy during the week if you actually have a job. I know it is Austin but some of us actually do work a normal 8 to 5 job. Do not get caught with your car inside the gate. You will not get it out until noon the following day. You can rent the various structures for parties & weddings. However, again you need to follow the noon to six schedule.

This is a great park to hike, play and walk your dog. I recently visited for a photo session. There are some old vintage buildings and a barn. The fields are stunning in the fall along with the beautiful colors and big trees.
