Zilker Park has been around for a long time, it’s had a big impact on my childhood. There’s a lot of family events I’ve had at the park. When you go to Zilker Park you see a lot of green grass, trees, and bushes which I love. Once you’re out of your car you smell the fresh air and see people playing with their dogs. You’ll see children laughing and running around on the playscape. Sometimes there’s a man that dresses up like a clown and makes anything you’d like from a balloon. Right near the stairs to head down to the river there’s a train that goes around the park. You can get your tickets at the concession stand. Back to the river, that’s where people take their dogs to swim. There’s also people that’ll swim with the dogs. When you head down the stairs to the left you’ll see kayaks visitors can rent to go around the Colorado river. To the right you’ll see the Barton Springs Pool which isn’t as costly as people may think. The water is really cold! But on a hot summer day it’s refreshing–almost. The last time I went to Zilker park was with my baby’s father, his mom, little cousin, and nephew. We watched a play that took place on a hill facing a stage. It was a good play I loved it. Afterwards, we went to the concession stand/snack store that sells anything from soda/water, to nachos,pickles, hot dogs, chips, etc. We got watermelon flavored snow cones and headed home. One other fantastic memory I have at Zilker park was when I used to go to go kayaking along the river. The kayaks are inexpensive as well. They give you an hour or so with your kayak. You’re guaranteed to see amazing horizons along with ducks, and turtles along the way. I’d recommend going to Zilker Park for any kind of occasion whether it’s family functions, baby showers, or birthday parties. There’s something for everyone to do that likes to run around and be active. It’s a very open and happy environment.

Dear LaDayzia:

I am amazed by your photograph, “Zilker Park” because it seems like a fun place. That is somewhere I would go on a nice cool day with no bugs.

One part of your photograph that stands out for me is where people were swimming with dogs. I think this is interesting because I would do the opposite of that.

Another part that I loved is how clean the water looks. This stood out for me because it reminds me of the beaches in Jamaica.

Your photograph reminds me of something that I did. For my sweet 16 we went to the beach in Atlantis, Bahamas.

Thanks for your photograph. I look forward to seeing what you make next, because you take amazing photos. The next one will probably better than this one.
