Description

Southeast Metro Park contains a 2 mile long concrete multi-use trail, which is ADA accessible and is suitable for bicycling and in-line skating.

Perhaps the gem of the park is a 3 mile primitive hiking trail which meanders its way through forested steep hills and valleys, and offers a glimpse of downtown Austin from ridge tops. The trail skirts two ponds and Onion Creek, providing opportunities for wildlife viewing, fishing (catch and release only), and bird watching.

Park staff are responsible for checking to see that the concession stand is clean, that all equipment is functioning properly, that there are ample trash bags for the day, and that the area is free of litter. It is the responsibility of the event coordinator to leave the concession stand clean and free of litter, and to notify park staff if any equipment is damaged or malfunctioning.

The event coordinator must see that all Texas Department of Health regulations are adhered to when selling food to the public.
