Who We Are
|The Walnut Creek Neighborhood includes
approximately 600 homes in north Austin, Texas. It
encompasses an area between IH-35 on the east, Braker
Lane on the South, North Lamar Avenue on the west, and
Walnut Creek on the north. Our neighborhood was built,
beginning in the late 1950s, on what was originally a
dairy farm. We take pride in our larger than average lots
and our beautiful mature oak trees, some of which are
100s of years old. In the past few years, we have adopted
15 acres of city owned flood control land along Walnut
Creek to maintain an entry area and about a one mile hike
and bike trail along the creek.
Another source of pride and leadership is our strong, organized Walnut Creek Neighborhood Association (WCNA), which has enabled us to combine our efforts during the City of Austin annexation, treatment of Oak Wilt Disease, change over from septic tanks to the city sewer system, and partnering with neighborhoods to our south in crime fighting efforts. The WCNA also organizes one of Austin's best Annual Neighborhood Nite Out celebrations.
With the rampant Austin population growth and movement of that population north into the "new downtown" areas such as the Domain, and Tech Ridge, we look forward to the increased valuation of our neighborhood's small town atmosphere and convenient location.
