3.11 Circle C Ranch Metropolitan Park

January 3, 2011

Surely I’m not the only person that’s not too excited to officially return to real life today. As far as “cases of the Mondays” go, this is one of the worst. Oh well, here’s to a good start to the first work week of the year.

This cooler weather has my dog Brady and me enjoy enjoying the dog parks and trails around town. While Circle C park isn’t leash-free, they have GREAT trails for running and walking. For me, something about a trail makes running more fun, and dogs love it! Also, it’s a lot less crowded than the Lady Bird Lake Hike & Bike Trails and parking is much easier.

For disc golf lovers, they have a great 18 hole disc golf course. I’m not much of a disc golfer. When I throw it the Frisbee always floats all over the place. But Austin has a ton of people who are really a great at it, and they’ll love this course. Last night my friend was giving me the complete rundown, insisting that it’s one of the best places to play.

The park also has a playground, soccer fields and a volleyball court.

If you’re over in that neck of the woods, bikers and rollerbladers also should remember about list item #58, the Veloway: http://365thingsaustin.com/2010/02/27/58-the-veloway/. Smoothest concrete in the city, no question.

    I think that it’s great to have someone that gives a list like this. Austin is and probably forever will be my favorite city. Hope to one day live there, sooner than later. I’ve been following this since 2010 and was excited you are at it again for 2011. Looking to make my way back there soon! And thank you!
