In Austin, there's as much city life as there are serene, peaceful spots to relax at. This summer, finding a park in Austin with waterfalls sounds like the ideal activity so you can get your tan on while being inches from a refreshing dunk underwater. Luckily, we know just the place to escape to and thanks to where it's hidden, it's probably somewhere you've never been before.\nSt. Edward's Park and Greenbelt in Austin is home to gorgeous trails to hike on, swimming spots, and even places to go mountain biking.\nWhile only one or two of those things might pique your interest, the park as a whole has something for everyone!\nIn fact, your furry friend is even allowed to tag along. There's no use leaving them at home, unable to enjoy the great outdoors with you.\nThe park and greenbelt are free to explore, so whether it's your pup you decide to bring along with you or your best friend, neither of you will have to break the bank to have some fun.\nView this post on Instagram smiling as if summer isn’t ending soon A post shared by jc (@jayci.martinka) on Jul 29, 2019 at 4:13pm PDT\nThe Green and Red Loop is one of the more popular trails at St. Edward's, thanks to its easiness and access to a cool, tranquil waterfall.\nAll skill levels are welcome to explore the scenic loop, all 2.7 miles of it!
