Eastwoods Park is a family-friendly nine-acre (3.64-hectare) outdoor space located just shy of the border of the University of Texas campus. It is easy to completely forget about its existence as it is hidden behind student accommodations and fraternity housing. What this park offers is a place for families to relax on a sunny afternoon with a playground for the kids. You will also find students taking advantage of the open space to read and play some sports. The park includes two tennis courts, two basketball courts, a splash pad, walking trails, picnic tables, and four barbecue pits for those of you who love to grill in the great outdoors. Everything is free to use, courtesy of the Austin Parks Foundation.
