The Point is a small, sandy peninsula with covered picnic areas, restrooms, and access to the water. No pets are allowed in this area.

Parking on The Point is limited. When the parking lot reaches capacity, vehicles are allowed in on a "five out, five in" basis.

Pavilion

Bob Wentz Park's pavilion has an outstanding view of Lake Travis with windows and French doors on all sides. There is a covered walkway around the perimeter and plenty of trees for shade and privacy. There are several six-foot long tables with about 20-25 chairs. The pavilion has a ceiling fan, electrical outlets, a fireplace (users must bring their own firewood), and a sink with running water. The pavilion is wheelchair accessible with parking nearby. There is no air conditioning. Reservations are required.
