More city parks to camp in, please

Y'all found some great places to tent camp, in the 10-15$ range, and now I'm extending that to more central Texas, anywhere in the Austin -San Antonio or Dallas region. Thank you!

I'm not interested in state parks at the moment, though they are a great solution. Those city parks that allow camping for a week or two are perfect. I don't need showers or electricity, just a bathroom. But any place that offers tent camping in the right area is fine. Thank you!

Emma Long Metropolitan Park on Austin has camping.

I know you've said you're not interested in State Parks, but I thought it's worth mentioning that McKinney Falls State Park is in Austin (pretty sure it's in the city limits, but it might be adjacent to the city limit).

Across the American West, many rodeo grounds permit camping when there's not a rodeo going on. Many are quite close to town.

They're not exactly municipal parks, but they might meet your need.
