What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Garrison Park Austin

I like how close my neighborhood is to everything I need. I work in downtown Austin and I don't sit in a lot of traffic to go to work.

I like the area which is centrally located. It is not more than 30 minutes from shopping areas, restaurants, and recreational areas.

Beautiful RV resort with helpful staff. Close to stores & restaurants. Many outdoor activities. Easy access to major state highway. 2 large dog parks. Daily trash pick-up. Recycling bin available. Very clean & modern laundry/shower facility

Very accessible to hospital, schools, shopping venues, major freeways, yet very private. A mix of the younger and older groups. A community that cares for each other when needed

There are plenty of stores. Plenty of transportation and sidewalk. Plenty of eaterys nearby. The schools are located well and within good distance.

I like that where I live is close to downtown to make the commute there easy, but it is removed enough that it feels safer. Also we are close to a lot of different stores that make shopping easy.
