Rosedale, Austin, Texas

The Rosedale neighborhood is located in north central Austin, Texas. The neighborhood borders on 38th Street to the south, Shoal Creek to the west, North Loop / Hancock Drive to the north, and Lamar Boulevard to the east (view boundary map). Ramsey Park is located in the heart of the neighborhood, and has a swimming pool, tennis courts, playgrounds, and picnic areas.[1] There are over 1200 homes in the area, a wide variety of businesses within easy walking distance, and an extensive network of medical services close at hand (including Seton Hospital[2]).

The Rosedale neighborhood began from farm and dairy land in the 1860s. In the 1900s, four florists and nurseries found their home in this area; much of the nursery stock planted during that time remains, as witnessed by the many large trees in the neighborhood.[3]

The majority of the homes in the Rosedale area were built during the 1930s and 1940s. There are continually many renovation projects and new construction throughout the neighborhood, which lends a sense of vitality and renewal. The population of the neighborhood is a fabulous blend of young families, single professionals, and original owners who raised their children here and have many tales to tell.

Beyond the delightful charm of the area, the Rosedale neighborhood's location makes it one of the most desirable of Austin's neighborhoods. There is a close proximity to the Texas State Capitol, Downtown Austin, and The University of Texas at Austin, as well as easy access to the main thoroughfares of the beautiful city of Austin.
