On Monday November 5, 2018, the Zilker Park Great Lawn, including the volleyball courts, will reopen to the public through November 15. Parking is available in the lots south of Barton Springs road and at Stratford and Lou Neff Road.
Austin area rain events, occurring overnight on October 14, created safety issues which delayed park maintenance and patch work that is required by the event after the festival. Though the park will open on November 5, maintenance work will continue as scheduled throughout the park. Ongoing maintenance work is expected to take approximately 2 weeks, weather permitting.
After November 15, the volleyball court area will close for the Trail of Lights, while fourteen acres will remain open throughout the end of the year for pedestrian and park use.
