The Zilker Zephyr, Zilker Park's miniature train, provides a 20-25 minute train ride around the park. This is a great way for children and adults to get a tour of Zilker Park, allowing them the perfect opportunity to see Barton Creek and Lady Bird Lake at a leisurely pace. 

The Zilker Zephyr miniature train leaves every hour on the hour through the week and departs every 30-40 minutes on the weekends, weather permitting.
