Zilker Park is such a jewel of Austin. This beloved park provides a place for all to enjoy gardens, trails, sprawling green space, a playground, mini train, nature center, Barton Springs, and so much more. We’re proud of our park and want to ensure it stays beautiful and clean!

Home to Austin City Limits Music Festival that’s coming up October 5-7 and October 12-14, Zilker Park obviously has a LOT of foot traffic during this time. Austin Parks Foundation wants to ensure that we’re all taking the best care of our park while rocking out.

Austin Parks Foundation has partnered with the Austin City Limits Music Festival for 12 years now on their signature programs, Rock & Recycle and Divert It!

  • Rock & Recycle — Stop by the Austin Parks Foundation booth and pick up a bag to fill up with recyclable items and get an ACL Fest T-shirt, and be entered to win a new Fairdale bicycle and be entered into a drawing for a pair of 2019 ACL Fest tickets every night.
  • Divert It! — Sign up to volunteers to encourage and educate fans by helping them compost, recycle and send less waste to landfills.

These programs are made possible by a team of 300+ volunteers who spread the word about Austin Parks Foundation’s mission and encourage fans to get involved. PLUS all volunteers get to enjoy the festival before or after their shift!
