English Lady Bird Lake

Lady Bird Lake (formerly, and still colloquially referred to as Town Lake) is a river-like reservoir on the Colorado River in Austin, Texas, United States. The City of Austin created the reservoir in 1960 as a cooling pond for a new city power plant. The surface area of the lake is 416 acres (168 ha), and it is currently used primarily for recreation and flood control. The reservoir is named in honor of former First Lady of the United States Lady Bird Johnson.Lady Bird Lake is the easternmost lake of a chain of reservoirs on the river, which is completely located in Texas, and should not be confused with the larger Colorado River located in the Southwestern United States. This chain, known locally as the Texas Highland Lakes, also includes Lake Buchanan, Inks Lake, Lake LBJ, Lake Marble Falls, Lake Travis, and Lake Austin.

Italian Lady Bird Lake

Il Lady Bird Lake è un lago artificiale sul fiume Colorado, situato presso la città di Austin, in Texas.

Il bacino si formò nel 1960 in conseguenza della costruzione di una diga sul fiume Colorado per regimentare il flusso delle acque e per creare una riserva idrica per la città di Austin. Ha un'area di 189 ha e una profondità massima di 5,5 metri.

Intorno al lago è stata costruita la "Hike and Bike Trail", una pista ciclabile e pedonabile lunga 16,3 km, molto frequentata dagli abitanti di Austin per fare jogging, passeggiate e giri in bicicletta.

Il lago si chiamava inizialmente "Town Lake", in luglio 2007 il City Council di Austin ha approvato una delibera per cambiare il nome del lago, dedicandolo a Lady Bird Johnson, moglie di Lyndon Johnson, 39º Presidente degli Stati Uniti.
