Lady Bird Lake Saturday Morning Walk (FREE) with Optional Lunch After

Saturday, February 10 – 9:00 am.

Meeting Point: Café At The Loren – 1211 W Riverside Drive.

You’re invited to come join us for a leisurely Saturday morning walk around Lady Bird Lake.

We’ll be traveling along the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake.

Meet people, get some steps in, and have fun. All are welcome.

Lady Bird Lake is a river-like reservoir on the Colorado River in Austin, Texas. The City of Austin created the reservoir in 1960 as a cooling pond for a new city power plant. The lake, which has a surface area of 416 acres (168 ha), is now used primarily for recreation and flood control. The reservoir is named in honor of former First Lady of the United States Lady Bird Johnson.

Lady Bird Lake is the easternmost lake of a chain of reservoirs on the river, which is completely located in Texas, and should not be confused with the larger Colorado River located in the Southwestern United States. This chain, known locally as the Texas Highland Lakes, also includes Lake Buchanan, Inks Lake, Lake LBJ, Lake Marble Falls, Lake Travis, and Lake Austin.

Cost: FREE for the walk. Optional lunch after at your own expense.

Parking: Many options throughout the area. If driving, please arrive in the area several minutes early so that you have plenty of time to find parking and walk to our meeting point.

Meeting Point: Outside of the Café At The Loren – 1211 W Riverside Drive. Look for your hosts Robert (wearing a fedora-style hat) & Michele, along with a group of friendly people.

Before the Event: Socializing from 9:00 – 9:15 am and then we’ll depart at approximately 9:15.

Icebreaker Introductions: We should have a good-sized group and so instead of everyone introducing themselves to the group we will get to know each other by distributing blank stickers and colored markers and we’ll ask everyone to write down on their sticker: 1). first name. 2). favorite food. 3). dream vacation. Example: “Michele – Strawberries – Kenya” or “Robert – Chocolate – Tokyo”.

Late Arrivals: If you arrive after 9:15 just catch up. We’ll cross the Colorado River via the Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge then walk east along the Ann and Roy Butler Trail.

Walking Distance: Approximately two miles with a few short breaks for photos, hydration, rest, etc. along the way.
