Lamplight Village is a charming neighborhood with a charming name. It is in far north Austin, almost at the city outskirts. Although the north Austin area is growing and developing rapidly, this neighborhood retains its small-town, suburban atmosphere.
Very family-oriented, the neighborhood is far from the city center. But it is close to local highways and thoroughfares, and there are many dining and shopping options nearby, with more constantly being added.
Lamplight Village is a archetypal suburban neighborhood, with well-kept homes, large and well-tended yards, and wide, tree-lined streets. The neighborhood is bordered on the south by Parmer Lane, which connects MoPac and I-35, two major local highways. So it is easy commuting to other parts of the city.
Also there are many restaurants and shopping centers along Parmer Lane, such as Chipotle Mexican Grill, Lemon Grass Cafe, and Food Shui (Chinese). Major upscale shopping centers including the Domain, the Arboretum, and the Round Rock Premium Outlets are just a few minutes’ drive away.
Being far north the neighborhood is rather distant from downtown, but the proximity to local highways makes the rest of the city accessible. The high-tech employers of north Austin are close by. Nearby the area are family-friendly parks, Walnut Creek and Katherine Fleischer Parks. This neighborhood appeals to professional families seeking a safe, small-town community, but with ready access to north and central Austin.Neighborhood Association Website
