One of them being Red Bud Isle on Lady Bird Lake (used to be called Town Lake). Red Bud Isle was formed in the middle of the Colorado River in 1900, when the 7-year old McDonald Dam collapsed in a major flood. The large granite and limestone boulders from the dam were buried in flood debris and later revegetated. The land was deeded to the City by the State of Texas in 1945.
This is a great area for outdoor activities: fishing, hiking, running, canoeing, and making a video!
