Barkley Meadows Park is located in eastern Travis County, an approximately 20 minute drive from downtown Austin.

Barkley Meadows Park offers visitors the gentle topography typical of the Blackland Prairie. Large pecan and oak trees provide ample shade to the grassy picnic areas scattered throughout the park. The peaceful, wooded surroundings, bordered by Onion Creek, provide an ideal locale for nature study, family gatherings, fishing, and bird watching.

A hike and bike trail follows along Onion Creek and provides opportunities for walking or biking while enjoying nature. The park also provides access to Onion Creek to fish or kayak or access to the Berdoll pond for catch and release fishing. A covered group shelter is available, by reservation, to hold family events.
