Jester is a quiet, family-friendly community that is bordered on three sides by the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve. The Jester area includes Jester Estates, Jester Farms, Jester Point, as well as a small section of homes called Canyon Ridge. Jester was recently recognized as the city of Austin’s second-best "Green Neighborhood" when Jester neighbors joined together in taking up the Green Neighbor - Clean Creek Challenge to help protect and preserve the countryside and waterways. Jester residents also maintain several award-winning green gardens throughout the neighborhood.
