Northwest District Park in Allandale (that's NW to me, might be south for you).

Great playscape for the 7-12 set.

I'll cast a vote for the Brushy Creek park in Avery Ranch. There's a small lake there, walking trail, playscape. The splash pad is closed right now, too cold...but a great park nonetheless.

Don't count out Brusy Creek Park.

I like how it intersects w/ other parks on the hike / bike trails.

A trip up to Georgetown's San Gabriel Park to see the "Creative Playscape" would be worth the drive as well. It's just North of downtown Georgetown.

A great new area central to Austin is the playground at Mueller next to the Lake Park - it has several different playscapes for varying ages.
