Balcones District Park runs along Amherst alongside the neighborhood. The park has a popular basketball court, volleyball court, Balcones Pool, a kids play area, and lots of wide open space. Down the trail behind the pool is access to a hiking trail, as well as a beautiful natural waterfall when the creek is flowing after rains.
We host an annual “Its My Park Day” clean up in conjunction with the Austin Parks Foundation.
There is currently no charge for pool use.
