Nestled along the Colorado River, this charming East Austin community offers convenient access to Highway 183 and the new SH-130 Tollway, with quick drives to downtown Austin and Austin-Bergstrom Airport. Austin's Colony features riverside parks, fishing, a community pool, an amenity center, and playscape with nature trails winding throughout the neighborhood. Students attend the growing Del Valle Independent School District which features the new Dailey Middle School and the award winning Hornsby-Dunlap Elementary School both located in the neighborhood.
The Colorado River Park offers natural delights to neighborhood residents. At the south end of the community lies the five-acre Austin's Colony Park on the banks of the gentle Colorado River. Fed by the six Highland Lakes from above, this precious river offers fishing canoeing, kayaking, adventure day-trips, picnicking and children's playscape. This the finest private park of any community east of Interstate 35.
