New Outdoor Rec Center With Pickleball, Live Music, And Beer Garden, Opens In Austin

Live music, sports, and outdoor entertainment, all rolled into one diverse entertainment venue.

When the name of your entertainment complex is called “Dreamland”, you’re already setting the bar pretty high. But when your entertainment complex, outdoor recreational center, and arts venue offers everything from Pickleball to live concerts, well, maybe the name is more fitting, after all.

If you’re not familiar with Pickleball, it’s a game that goes back to the mid 60s similar to the Mexican-born game of del, a game that incorporates elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. Unlike Pádel, however, Pickleball is not played in an enclosed setting, and uses a plastic perforated ball. More importantly, it’s an entertaining game and a whole lot of fun to play. Beginning next Friday, you can step up your game at Dreamland, where the complex is opening with four covered courts – equipment provided, if needed.

In the name of sport, Dreamland also features a 54-hole mini-golf course. With punctuated cacti, replica oil rigs, and one holed-out saloon, the course offers a rustic, very-much-Texas, atmosphere in which to play out your game.

As a standout from other recreational venues, Dreamland also features a larger-than-life art exhibition, with monumental sculptures, murals, mosaic tile installations, and other art pieces decorating its grounds.

As Austin is the live music capital of the world, Dreamland will also begin hosting live concerts in March.

Lastly, Dreamland also has a beer garden on its grounds, with 90 self-pour taps  that range from local beers, to ciders, hard seltzers, kombuchas, and central Texas wines. It also features a full kitchen menu. While it has yet to be released, Dreamland promises everything from Tex-Mex to pizza.
