Mary Quinlan Park is located on the upper reaches of Lake Austin. This small, moderately visited park offers 5.8 acres of rolling hills with 200 feet of shoreline access, including the only public boat ramp for several miles. Because of the narrow width of Lake Austin in this area, Mary Quinlan Park preserves much of the feel of the original steep-sloped Colorado River bottoms.
