Residents tend to be couples in their 30s and 40s, as well as seniors and empty nesters. Amenities include a pool, hiking and biking trails, and several local city parks including nearby Barton Creek Wilderness Park.Oak Hill has its own newspaper, the Oak Hill Gazette, to keep residents informed of local developments.
Not be much in the way of shopping or nightlife here, but the conveniences of downtown and west Austin are just a few miles away. The neighborhood offers easy access to major local highways MoPac and Hwy. 290.Oak Hill Neighborhood Website
