Windsor Park is a middle-class, mixed-ethnicity neighborhood north of downtown. The neighborhood has many ranch-style homes built in the 1950s to 70s, with affordable prices and a family-friendly atmosphere. Residents have access to parks, playgrounds, and golf courses in the area.
The neighborhood borders two major local highways, and public transportation is also accessible. Downtown and the University of Texas are about 15 minutes’ drive away.
Windsor Park is an established, residential neighborhood just east of I-35. Here you’ll find many one-story ranch homes mostly built in the mid-1900s, with large lots on clean, tree-lined streets. The neighborhood borders Hwy. I-35 to the west and Hwy. 290 to the north, so residents have access to other parts of the city.
The neighborhood has a close-knit community with an active neighborhood association. Although some sections have fallen into disrepair, for the most part residents take pride in their neighborhood, and houses are well-maintained. The neighborhood is relatively safe for an urban location.
There are several major parks in the area, including Bartholomew District
Park just to the south,
which has ball fields, BBQ grills, picnic tables, a splash area, and playscape. There is also a private school and library in the neighborhood, and public schools close by.
Although some of the neighborhood’s original residents still live here, younger singles and families have also moved in, attracted by the affordable housing, neighborhood character, and relatively convenient location. The neighborhood population is a mix of ethnicities, with about half Caucasians, a little less than half Mexicans, and the remainder African American and Asian.Neighborhood Association Website
