A Little About the Neighborhood

Most of the neighborhood’s growth occurred in the 1920s and 30s. Lots tend to be smaller and contain bungalows, many of which have been renovated. And as with most burgeoning neighborhoods, there is also a construction boom resulting in more modern-looking homes. Home prices can range from just below $300,000 to well over $1 million.

There are more than 2,700 households and 5,700 residents in the area, which includes Auditorium Shores, the Long Center for the Performing Arts, and the Lester E. Palmer Community Events Center. Residents can walk or bicycle among tall oak trees to the Barton Creek Greenbelt, the hike-and-bike trail to Town Lake, Barton Springs and Zilker Park. Despite being just south of downtown Austin, Bouldin Creek remains a quiet,  safe residential neighborhood.

Things To Do

This neighborhood is one of the best locations for people that love the walkability and convenience of downtown Austin but want to live in a home. The restaurants that make up this area include Bouldin Creek Cafe, Fresa’s Chicken, Sway, Lenoir and Elizabeth Street Cafe. And if that’s not enough, you’re adjacent to the South Congress (SoCo) entertainment district to the east and the South Lamar (SoLa) entertainment district to the west, both of which offer a wide assortment of funky stores, cafes, coffee shops and restaurants. To the north is Riverside and downtown Austin, which provide more music, dining, and nightlife.

From a standpoint of being walkable, this is one of the best Austin neighborhoods and many urbanists believe it is the pinnacle of Austin living. 

And when the past and future merge in an area like Bouldin Creek, you get restaurants like the newly renovated Mattie’s at Green Pastures, where residents can eat in the boyhood home of famous Austin activist John Henry Faulk, built in 1894. Another unique dining experience is the Soup Peddler, which was founded by a former high-tech worker, who traded in his cubicle for a bicycle and a wheeled cooler to offer delivery of soups and entrees.


Becker Elementary and Travis Heights Elementary (PK-5) both provide dual-language programs. Fulmore Middle School (6-8) and William B. Travis High School (9-12) also serve the community. The neighborhood’s largest institutional resident is the 65-acre Texas School for the Deaf. As with all neighborhoods served by AISD, there are other magnet school options for residents.
