Located in the basin area of Lake Travis in the scenic Hill Country of central Texas, Bob Wentz Park is a favorite location for water sports. The park's facilities and close proximity to Austin (approximately one-half hour's drive from downtown) make it attractive for picnicking, swimming, windsurfing, sailing, and scuba diving.
The shoreline areas (including a sandy peninsula known as "The Point") are heavily used, while an adjacent 150-acre tract is maintained as a natural area. The park includes two sand volleyball courts, a shoreline walking path, a boat dock, and a pavilion available for rent.
Annual Visitors: 300,000
The Bob Wentz Pavilion: The 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 can accommodate about 40 people. The pavilion has a ceiling fan, electrical outlets, a fireplace, (users must bring their own firewood) and a sink with running water. Note: There is no air conditioning in the pavilion. The pavilion is wheelchair accessible with parking nearby. Fee information
