Since its inception in 1955, the affluent Rollingwood community has remained what it was originally designed to be: a safe, friendly neighborhood close to – but separate from – the big city life of downtown Austin. Even with all the recent growth and development in the surrounding area, Rollingwood has nonetheless managed to retain its original allure and charm where winding streets lead to hilltop panoramas of nearby parks and lakes, and people live their lives in quiet homes that feel far from the urban bustle of downtown Austin.
Rollingwood is located within minutes of numerous restaurants, museums, art galleries, and entertainment venues in the downtown area. Rollingwood residents also enjoy easy access to a lot of great hiking, biking, swimming, and boating opportunities nearby. Zilker Park – Austin’s most popular central park–offers plenty of outdoor entertainment and recreation for Rollingwood residents. Visitors can explore Barton Creek Greenbelt, canoe on Town Lake, play a game of sand volleyball, or even a round of disc golf. And, nothing beats the Texas summer heat like a dip into the cool waters of famous Barton Springs located in Zilker Park as well.
Rollingwood is part of the famous Eanes Independent School District, which is considered to be one of the best school districts in the state. Most of the schools within the Eanes ISD have been named Blue Ribbon schools, the highest raating possible for a US school. Children living in Rollingwood attend Eanes Elementary, Hill Country Middle, and Westlake High School.
