Bryker Woods is one of my favorite central Austin neighborhoods. Located just north of Windsor, this area is very convenient to many Austin favorites. In the center of this community are such treasures as the original Kerbey Lane Cafe,the hospital district, St. Andrew’s Episcopal School and several other other hot spots such as spas and boutiques.
One of my absolutely favorite features of this area are the numerous parks and walking / cycling trails. A great walking and cycling trail is found in Seiders Springs Park. Just north of the park you can actually enter the trail on Shoal Creek Boulevard. The park runs along Shoal Creek and rests just behind Seton Medical Center. The trails then continue south along St. Edward’s Episcopal School. Then around 34th street it turns into a fantastic hiking area complete with rocky terrain. The trail continues along North Lamar and ends at Enfield on your way to Town Lake, also known as Lady Bird Lake.
On any given day you can see people playing in the creek, cycling, doing yoga or thai chi and just enjoying friends and family. There’s even a spot for frisbee golf. The park includes a gazebo area perfect for parties or just escaping the sun. Further up the park extends into an area with play ground equipment and several bar-b-que pits for general festivities.
