Austin Public Spaces

"Philosophers' Rock" in Zilker Park set among limestone boulders

This sculpture by Glenna Goodacre was placed in a setting of native limestone boulders allowing the statue to be set apart from its busy surroundings while also maintaining public accessibility. This much-loved Austin landmark has become the popular setting for photographs, a meeting point in Zilker Park, an entrance marker for Barton Springs Pool and a tempting (although discouraged) playscape for adventurous children.
