What’s with the name?
As we discussed potential names one thing we knew we wanted was something that showcased our Austin roots. Our namesake, Zilker Park, was founded 100 years ago this year in Austin after local businessman and politician Andrew Zilker donated more than 350 acres of land to Austin’s school district, which then sold it to the city for to be used as a park. Zilker Park remains the life-blood and gathering point of our vibrant city, hosting iconic Austin events such as Austin City Limits, Blues on the Green, Zilker Kite Festival and Trail of Lights, and is the home of famous Barton Springs. Our team grew up going to Zilker Park and to this day we’re not only regulars there but we continue to be inspired by the creativity, community and good vibes the park inspires in Austin and beyond – something very congruent with our vision for Zilker Media.
