Recreation

Bryker Woods homes were mostly built between the 1930s and 1950s but homeowners have maintained them well and they have retained classic charm. Surrounded by beautiful trees and well-maintained lawns, the neighborhood is recognized in the National Register of Historic Places. 

Residents do not run out of activities, be it outdoor fun or shopping and dining. Several parks are available for family activities and individual respite. Some of these parks are:

  • Seider Springs Greenbelt 
  • Bailey Neighborhood Park
  • Shoal Creek Greenbelt
  • Hartford Triangle
  • Jarrat Triangle Park

Many families and friends visit the parks for kite-flying, picnics, physical exercise, or just to relax in the cool shade of trees. Bryker Woods is home to two golf courses, the Hancock Golf Course and the Lions Municipal Golf Course. 

Despite being a largely residential area, residents have easy access to shopping and dining establishments around the perimeter of the community. Some popular restaurants are:

  • Tiny Boxwoods Austin – they serve delicious American classics
