Frequently Asked Questions

Bike
Consider using pedal power! Ride your own bicycle to the park or consider using Austin B-cycle when stations are within walking distance. Make sure your bicycle is equipped with lights as it is required by law and it will be dark on your ride home. To find the safest bike routes, please visit the City’s bike website or find a hike/bike trail.

Public Transport
If you prefer to use public transportation, please refer to the CapMetro website for bus and train routes, as well as costs.

Ride Sharing
Parking is often limited, especially when movies are held in our downtown parks. Consider carpooling, or try out one of the many ride sharing apps available here in Austin!

Interested in getting your company’s name and logo in front of hundreds of park lovers each season? Consider sponsoring the 2016 Movies in the Park season! It’s a great way to reach the audiences of both APF and the Alamo Drafthouse, and you’ll be helping us serve more of Austin. Contact development@austinparks.org to learn more!
Especially for our Adopt-A-Park groups, Austin Parks Foundation is proud to partner with FunFlicks Outdoor Movies to bring the Movies in a Box program to more parks. This program is only available to current Park Adopters, and includes access to discounted rental rates with FunFlicks. Movies are fantastic community gathering events, they are a great way to celebrate holidays in your neighborhood, and are a way to fundraise for your park through sponsorship solicitations.
