Southwest Austin is a very attractive, diverse area with rolling hills, shade trees, and tranquil nature trails. There is easy access to the downtown area from Southwest Austin via Mopac/Loop 1 as well as easy access to Bergstrom Airport. Located south of Lady Bird Lake, Southwest Austin is a rapidly growing area with new commercial and residential establishments popping up regularly.
Well established neighborhoods with lots of old oak trees such as Shady Hollow and Western Oaks makes this side of the river a very desirable area. Some other Southwest Austin neighborhoods are: Barker Ranch, Bridges at Bear Creek, Brodie Springs, Circle C, Granada Hills & Granada Oaks, Legend Oaks, Meridian, Westcreek, and Villages at Western Oaks. The National Wildflower Center and a unique Veloway system for bikes and rollerblading also call this area home.
