Total Eclipse 2024 ATX

Family watching total eclipse 2024

In preparation for the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse in Austin, the Parks and Recreation Department and Austin Nature and Science Center partnered with NASA to present programming and activities that relate to this historic cosmological event. People from all around the country and local Austinites descended into Zilker Park to take part of this once-in-a-lifetime experience, as Austin won’t be in the path of totality again for another 319 years.

The In The Parks video series connects Austinites to the places they love and the people who define our quality recreational, cultural, and outdoor experiences.

Through these videos, we explore people and places that make Austin’s parks system one of a kind. Watch the full playlist.
