Zilker Garden Gate

My friend Jackie walked over to Zilker on her Sunday morning walk yesterday. She shot a nice detail of this gate at Zilker Gardens which we will show tomorrow, but wanted to give you the big picture today. This gate was a massive iron and stone work project. I found a web site that chronicles the work and a lot of the people responsible.


  1. Thanks so much for the link, Linda! We fell in love with that gate soon after moving to Austin but didn't know the backstory. Aren't its intricacies fun to photograph?

    (working on the Diva blogs so have on my Glinda hat, but it's still Annie at the Transplantable Rose)

  2. LB, thanks so much for the story of the gates. Another Austin treasure.... We watched in wonder as they were being built, but never knew who was responsible. I Googled, but didn't catch this page.
