UMLAUF Sculpture Garden

One of the many UMLAUF sculptures at the garden in Zilker Park.Several paths take you through the garden to discover over 130 sculptures by Charles Umlauf, an internationally recognized sculptor. Sculptures range from detailed realism to lyrical abstractions. Family groups, animals, religious and mythological figures, and nudes are featured in the collection. The figures are crafted from wood, terra cotta, stone, bronze, and marble. This serene and shady spot is wonderful for escaping the Austin summer heat while still communing with nature and art.

A stream runs through the garden, forming small pools at various spots. Both the museum and the garden are accessible to people with disabilities.

For Museum information, call (512) 445-5582.

 

The Trail Of Trees

The Capitol Trail of Trees

A fun and educational way of taking a walk while experiencing a little Texas history at the same time. The century-old Texas Capitol has long been recognized for the beauty of its grounds.

From the earliest plantings, an effort has been made to display a diverse variety of native and exotic trees adapted to Texas. This small forest, while serving its traditional landscape functions, also acts as a useful arboretum for teaching, research, and observation.

There are also three other Trails of Trees:

Stacy Park Trail of Trees

(lists 30 species of trees)

Zilker Park Trail of Trees

(lists 28 species of trees)

Catherine Lamkin Arboretum Trail of Trees

Located along Boggy Creek (lists 35 species of trees)

Guides for these trails are available from PARD.
