Activity Overview

Emma Long Metropolitan Park is one of the largest municipal parks in Austin, Texas. It is located alongside Lake Austin and is named after Emma Long, the first woman to serve as Mayor Pro Tem of the city. In addition to its beautiful natural views, the park features several swimming areas, a fishing pier, a boat dock, volleyball and basketball courts, picnic facilities, and campsites that are especially popular in the summertime.
