About Canyon Creek
Located off of both Highway 620 and 222, Canyon Creek is a more modern residential neighborhood that’s close to Lake Travis. There are more than 1,300 homes in the community, which began development during the 1980s. Because this neighborhood is within Texas Hill Country, it’s easy to find a home with beautiful hill views. Even though the community is close to two major highways, it feels isolated and like it’s part of the countryside. Of course, while you’re here, you’re just a short drive away from numerous shopping and dining options. Renting a dumpster is also easy.
There’s no shortage of amenities in the community. From the community pool to two parks, a playground, grills for BBQ, an outdoor pavilion, playing fields, and ball courts, there’s always something to do here. You can find a trail for hiking and cycling as well.
If you’re interested in activities like boating, fishing, camping, or would simply like to have a picnic, both Lake Austin and Lake Travis are just a few short miles away.
The land that Canyon Creek was built on was once used for hunting and cattle ranching. Developers began converting it to a residential area near the end of the 1980s. Construction was finally finished in 2005. Now, although the area is fairly secluded, you can find wide streets and beautifully maintained laws on local streets. It’s also close to amenities like restaurants, shops, and outdoor activities.
Highway 620 and 2222 are just a short distance from the neighborhood. This means that it’s easy to access west Austin and other parts of the city.
