4 great austin neighborhoods for the growing family

Despite its already large size, Austin is one of the fastest growing cities in North America. It has ample job opportunities, affordable housing, and safe neighborhoods. Outdoor recreation and one of the best school systems in the country offer everyone a myriad of things to do, whether it be fishing, golfing, or hiking. Because of these desirable traits, Austin is the perfect place to raise a large family. Here are four of our top choices!

Olympic Heights

One of the best Austin neighborhoods has got to be Olympic Heights. This subdivision is south of Austin and offers affordable housing with plenty of nearby amenities. Homes are large with spacious yards and plenty of room for children of all ages to play.

Homes are modest with open floor plans; interiors can be up to 3,200 square feet! With plenty of storage, never worry about where to put your children’s toys. With multiple levels, there is more than enough room for you and your family to thrive!

A gated community, Olympic Heights works hard to involve everyone within the neighborhood whether it is fun and games, or annual events. HOA fees cover beautiful amenities and common maintenance. Once you arrive, you’ll never want to leave.

Windsor Park

Windsor Park is located northeast of Austin. It’s well known for the number of nearby schools in its area and is ideal for families that are already established and looking to grow further. Homes are spacious, and the community has been rooted since the mid-1950s. Because of this, there are many incredible trails through the area for bikers and on-foot commuters.

This neighborhood is rapidly growing and in constant development, meaning that new shops and homes are added constantly. Because of its central location to downtown Austin, it has everything that a growing family needs. New things are always exciting, too, so don’t forget to stay up to date with everything that Windsor Park has to offer!


Brentwood is one of the safest neighborhoods around. It has some of the best public transportation, too. If you have kids old enough to take the school bus, then this is the perfect neighborhood for you! Also use the public transportation options to get yourself to and from work with ease.

Homes are priced reasonably, and many residences even come with their own pools! On hot days, relax in the water and cool off without having to spend money using the air conditioner. The people of Brentwood are notoriously friendly, too, which definitely makes finding new friends and acquaintances easier.

As downtown Austin is so close, it’s easy to come and go with all the groceries you require. Employment is booming in Austin as well, which means that commuting to work will always be easy!

Avery Ranch

Peaceful and casual, Avery Ranch is located far enough away from the city’s hustle and bustle and close enough to some great amenities that you’ll find yourself in the perfect place of balance. Ranch-style homes are well known for their size, and most of the available real estate boasts at least two stories.

There is access to plenty of storage, especially in the form of massive walk-in closets and kitchen pantries. Houses have up to four bedrooms and up to four bathrooms. They’re in an established neighborhood known for its modern look while still retaining some lovely old-world charm.
