Yarrabee Bend opens at Onion Creek park

Monday, June 24, 2019 by Tai Moses

Zilker Park too crowded this summer? Take your picnic blanket to the new Yarrabee Bend section of Onion Creek Metropolitan Park. This new section, which officially opened on Saturday, features 190 acres of parkland converted to its natural state along with 100 acres designated for recreation. There are 30 pavilions – one of them for extra-large gatherings – outfitted with picnic tables and grills, as well as a new restroom facility. Walking enthusiasts will enjoy the quarter-mile, half-mile and 1-mile granite loop paths. Yarrabee Bend will eventually join another 400 acres of Onion Creek park being developed to the south.
