Austin is one of those cities that you can find people running or bicycling at virtually any hour of the day. With year-round mild to warm (albeit, humid) weather, it’s natural for locals to want to get outside and get active. It’s just part of what makes Austin, Austin. We know of more than a few apartments where the outdoors can be right at your front door, literally. With quick access to some of the city’s hottest hike and bike paths and trails, these apartment communities have got a whole lot of good-natured fun going for them.
For access to The Boardwalk:
Amli South Shore:
This 2010-built beauty of a property has luxury living wrapped up into a bustling, activity-centered waterfront location. On the south shore of Lady Bird Lake, the upscale property has direct access to the lake, boat docks, and, of course, The Boardwalk hike and bike trails. Plus, you can’t beat its onsite amenities, like two courtyard pools, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and over 15,000 square feet of on-location retail and restaurants.
With access to Lady Bird Lake Trail and The Boardwalk, this property is more than just a pretty face. Or, er, a pretty apartment. It’s close to downtown and Austin’s Entertainment District, it offers residents a resort-style pool with cabana and deck seating, and it has the highest end finish-outs, like sustainable-engineered wood flooring, solid slab granite countertops, and spacious interiors with large walk-in closets.
For access to the Barton Creek Greenbelt:
Zilkr on the Park:
Built in 2014, these apartments offer brand new lavish everything for you to soak up in your new home. Adjacent to Zilker Park and walking distance to the Barton Creek Greenbelt, this property is not lacking in a variety of outdoorsy things to do. Additionally, it’s close to shopping and dining along Barton Springs Road and South Lamar. Yes, please.
Post Barton Creek:
This more seasoned property, built in the 90s, has an ideal location for lovers of South Austin and outdoors activities. Breathtaking views surround these apartments at every turn, and it boasts convenient access to downtown, UT, Zilker Park, Barton Creek retail, and, obvi, the Barton Creek Greenbelt.
For access to Barton Springs:
Barton Hills/Park Place:
Another slightly older property, this building has been renovated to fit a contemporary Austinite’s wants and needs. With no shortage of fun to be had, the onsite features, like a tennis court and swimming pool, are just as exciting as the neighborhood features, like the convenient access to the rowing dock, Zilker Park, and the Barton Springs Pool.
This new, luxury property was actually built with active, outdoor lifestyles in mind. From the Precor-equipped fitness center to the close accessibility to trails and parks, Coldwater is a place for the health-minded to call home. The yoga and mat-pilates room, downtown and Texas Hill Country views, and upscale in-unit amenities make it an ideal home for anyone.
