Richard Moya Park is located in eastern Travis County, approximately 20 minutes' drive from downtown Austin.
Richard Moya Park offers visitors the gentle topography typical of the Blackland Prairie. Stands of large pecan and oak trees provide ample shade to the grassy picnic areas scattered throughout the park. The peaceful, wooded surroundings, bordered on the south by Onion Creek, provide an ideal locale for nature study, school outings and bird watching.
Two miles of hike and bike trails wind through the large pecan groves. A historic, century-old bridge that once was the Congress Avenue bridge over the Colorado River in downtown Austin now crosses Onion Creek in the park, providing a scenic backdrop to this diverse urban park. Covered group shelters, two multi-use fields along with the park's natural beauty, convenience, and easy accessibility have made it one of the most popular family gathering places in eastern Travis County.
