Picnic at Walter E. Long Metropolitan Park

Walter E. Long Metropolitan Park is located just two miles away from Oak Forest and offers an array of secluded spots to sit and enjoy a nice, quiet picnic with your favorite person or just by yourself. This spot is especially perfect if you like to fish! Lake Walter E. Long offers a variety of freshwater stock. The reservoir contains populations of largemouth bass and hybrid striped bass. Channel and flathead catfish are also present, but in low numbers, as well as bluegill and redbreast sunfish. A park entrance fee is charged per day per car at the pay station: $5 per day, Monday through Thursday; $10 per day Friday through Sunday, and Holidays. There are also multi-entry passes per car (20 entries): Regular is $75; Seniors age 62 and older are $40. Cost for walk-in is $1 per person.

Bike around the Colorado/Walnut Greenbelt

It’s the perfect time to go biking. The weather is warming up and it’s a safe activity that keeps you at a distance from other people. Don’t have a bike? Don’t worry! Austin Bike Tours and Rentals is still open and offers short term and long-term bike rentals. Walnut Creek Trail is a beautiful trail that isn’t typically crowded and is paved for easy riding.

Visit the Texas Farmers’ Market

The Texas Farmers’ Market at Mueller is safely providing fresh produce and pantry items to locals. While you can’t leisurely walk around the market like before, it’s still a good way to get outside and support local farmers through this time. The Texas Farmers’ Market at Lakeline also offers a nice variety of items that sometimes aren’t at Mueller. Both are worth visiting, even while social distancing! Wondering  about how they’re handling COVID-19? They’re taking every precaution and offering several stations for shoppers to wash and sanitize their hands.

Visit Roy G. Guerrero Colorado River Metro Park

While the playground and other activities at Roy G. Guerrero Colorado River Metro Park might be closed, it’s still a great location to stretch those legs! Along the Colorado River (as the name suggests) visitors are still treated to scenic views and spacious trails.
