The lake starts below the Mansfield Dam, which is principally fed by the outflow of Lake Travis. The lake meanders generally from northwest to southeast, with few significant tributaries; the largest are Bull Creek, entering from the north near where Loop 360 spans the lake at the Pennybacker Bridge, and Bee Creek, entering from the west just above Tom Miller Dam, where the lake ends. Its outflow through Tom Miller Dam then becomes the principal inflow for Lady Bird Lake.

Emma Long Metropolitan Park | For years, the park on Lake Austin was named City Park. Then, on June 28, 1984, Mayor Carol Keeton Rylander, proposed to the City Council that the park be renamed for Emma Long. Emma Long was first elected to the Austin City Council in 1948. During her tenure, she reactivated the Parks Board and became a long time supporter. In 1967, she became the first woman to serve as Mayor Pro Tem in Austin. She also supported an Open Housing Ordinance and in 1969, she became one of three Council Member to lose reelection, due to their support of the ordinance.  The unveiling renaming the park took place on Friday, December 10, 1993. “It’s nice to have a park with a lot of natural features”, said Long. In clarifying park names, she distinguished herself from Walter E. Long, “we are no kin, in fact he thought I was radical. We later became friends”. Her political career spanned nearly two decades.
