Perks And Recreation

Stuff galore for the great outdoors.

You're the couple who always sets up the play dates for your friends. Which somehow means you're also responsible for providing entertainment, refreshments and a smattering of singles for those looking to flirt over frisbee tosses.

When next you set up an outing at Zilker, rely on Big Backyard Sporting Goods for part of the provisions. This locally-created pop-up concept hooks up parkgoers with the stuff a great day is made of. Located in a quick service tent on the lawn next to Barton Springs Pool, this creative outlet offers rentals for everything from footballs and volleyballs to classic lawn game accoutrements for bocce, croquet and cornhole. Also available for sale: doggie treats and toys, sunscreen and bugspray.

Because trying to map out who wants a ring and who just wants to ring toss can be a pain in the grass.

Currently open Saturdays from 10 a.m. - 8 p.m.
