Lake Pflugerville Park

January 27, 2021

Whenever we are craving a trip to the beach, we love to head to Lake Pflugerville for a swim! This park has something for everyone, including a 180-acre reservoir for swimming and a three-mile trail for walking or jogging.

The boys were very interested in this unusual playscape feature.

We walked to the lakeshore to take a look around.

The sand made it feel like we were at the beach!

The boys couldn’t resist wading into the water.

If you plan on staying for a while, make sure you bring chairs, pop up shade canopies, lunches, beach toys, etc.

The lake isn’t just for swimming. There were windsurfers, kayakers and SUP riders too.

If you don’t have your own equipment, you can rent it on site!

Lake Pflugerville Park also has a pavilion with tables to enjoy your snacks or meal.

Austin Active Kids Opinion

You could play for an hour or play all day at Lake Pflugerville Park.

Outing Time

Just over two hours.


The park has restrooms, water fountains, picnic tables, and grills. There is not much shade. Bring water, snacks, chairs, pool floats, beach/sand toys, hats, towels, sunscreen, pop up shade canopies, small tents, etc. Please note that there are no lifeguards on duty at Lake Pflugerville! Make sure to pack your life jackets or other swimming support gear (depending on your kids’ swimming skills) and watch your children carefully.

Special events like the Lake Pflugerville Triathlon and the Pflugerville Pfirecracker Pfestival occur at Lake Pflugerville so check the City of Pflugerville’s online calendar or other community calendars, especially if you go on a weekend or holiday.
