Come bike along Lady Bird Lake on the City’s beautiful new Boardwalk – built partly over the river and partly on land – to glose a gap and create a continuous 10-mile hike-and-bike trail. The much-beloved trail attracts more than 1.5 million visits a year. Along the way, you will hear about a major master plan to redesign and redevelop the adjoining area of the city (directly across the water from Downtown), which lacks a connected street grid, including a current street redesign project funded with a GreeningAmerica’s Capitals EPA Smart Growth grant.
