South Austin - easy living and affordable real estate

Shady Hollow Austin, a census-designated place in southwestern Travis County, is a beautiful neighborhood located about 10 miles southwest of Downtown Austin.

Shady Hollow AustinThankfully, back in the 1970s, the Shady Hollow homeowners association prevented the banks from over-developing the area. This resultet in a preservation of generous park land with expansive green spaces and marvelous old-growth trees.

Since the 1980s, this South Austin neighborhood is owned and managed by the Shady Hollow Homeowners Corporation, and they make sure that nothing bad happens to the place. Good.


Capistrano Park and Pool is the home of the Shady Hollow Stingrays. Don't worry - it's the swim team. You'll find tennis courts and pretty playscapes for kids. You may even rent the event facilities at the neighborhood center for your anniversaries, weddings, birthday parties and other celebrations.

It's nice but the thing is: I prefer North Austin. Some of my kids live south.
