There’s a new way to play in Easton Park: Skyline Park is open. The 21-acre space offers tons of outdoor fun to the Southeast Austin neighborhood, and as the name implies, stunning views of the city skyline.

Development on Skyline Park began in 2022 thanks to a $13 million investment from real estate developer Brookfield Residential Properties. It aims to preserve Austin’s green space while providing areas for the community to gather. Key features include:

  • A play and climbing structure for kids ages 5+ designed to look like stacked houses
  • A play area for kids ages 2-5 with a softer surface for bouncing and playing
  • Splash pads to beat the Texas heat
  • A shady pavilion for concerts + shows
  • Mini Penny Bridge — a small-scale replica of Austin’s Pennybacker Bridge
  • “Singing Mountain,” a kinetic, musical wind sculpture

Ready to swing by? Skyline Park is located at 7800 Apogee Blvd. and is open from dawn until dusk.
