Stumbled across this statue on a walk through the park with the family. Great likeness of SRV and good stop for music lovers. Great walking & bike trails through this lakeside park in downtown. Great views of downtown Austin from this location.

The SRV statue is a statue in a nice park. It's not really something that you have to see except for the fans. The park self is very nice to walk in, next to the Town Lake

Ike, our guide on the Austin Detours trip, told us that this statue was waist-deep in water during a flood a few years ago. Not inappropriate if you're familiar with Stevie Ray's tune, "Texas Flood". Great staure in a great setting with Lady Bird Lake...More

This is a great place to stop and see this statue of an idol. Located in a pretty little park, it has a fantastic view of the skyline of Austin. The park is very nice and well kept, with lots of friendly squirrels.

This is great tribute to a man who dedicated his life to making music we all can connect with. The Park is nice along the lake, don't have to be SRV fan to realize he brought Austin Music back on the Map and so many...More

The statue is located on a great walking path that borders Town Lake. It is located south of downtown and the city makes a beautiful backdrop for great photo ops. Wear enclosed waking shoes for best comfort as the path is smooth dirt and gravel....More

But if your pushed for time, you can miss it. Nice stroll in the park, great view of the city, and a place for the true fans to have a religious experience, right where SRV would hold court so many times.

It's on the town lake hike and bike trail on the south side of the river. An Austin gem and a must see.

We had a lovely bike ride along the river and came across the Stevie Ray Vaughan Statue. Even though it was blistering hot, we enjoyed the route, it would be more enjoyable in slightly cooler temperatures. recommend it for all cycling enthusiasts

Located right on Lady Bird Lake (Town Lake) are also the Radisson, Four Seasons, and Holiday Inn. Within a few blocks there are several others.
