Clarksville Neighborhood in Downtown Austin Has Outdoor Activites, Restaurants and Shopping within Walking Distance

Outdoor Activities

Old West Austin is a beautiful neighborhood to take a stroll, with shops and restaurants within waking distance. Cycling is a common form of transportation for residents, and Shoal Creek hike and bike trail is a few blocks to the Northeast, and Town Lake Trail is only a few blocks South.

There are two neighborhood parks: Mary Francis Baylor Park, which features a new splash pad, and West Austin Park, which includes an off-leash dog area. Both parks have playscapes, swings, and basketball courts.

Food and Shopping

Clarksville is just west of downtown, so clubs and restaurants are only minutes away. Around the corner is the 6th Street and Lamar shopping district, which includes Whole Foods, Book People, REI, Anthropologie, Waterloo Records, and Amy´s Ice Cream.

Old West Austin is home to plenty of cafes, coffee shops, and restaurants, especially along West Lynn. Galaxy Cafe offers quick, casual dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Their sister restaurant, Zocalo Cafe, is just down the street and serves delicious, authentic Mexican dishes.
Jeffrey´s Restaurant and Bar, at West Lynn and 12th Street, offers upscale dining and an eclectic cusinine. Across the street is Cipollina, a casual Italian bistro. Caffé Medici is an espresso bar and coffee house at West Lynn and 11th, where the patio is always overflowing with friendly patrons. Nau´s Drugstore is a genuine 1950s pharmacy that serves up classic burgers and milkshakes.

Fresh Plus is a convenient neighborhood grocery, located at West Lynn and 13th street, that carries a great selection of vegan and gluten-free foods. In this same district are dry cleaners, a nursery, and one of Austin´s best Latin-American import stores, El Interior.
 
There are several places to grab a bite on 6th Street west of Lamar, including Rounders Pizzeria, Sweetish Hill Bakery, Portabla, Cafe Josie, Z-Tejas, Snap Kitchen, and 24 Diner. Also on this stretch of 6th are several art galleries, a couple antique stores, and Wiggy´s Liquors, a neighborhood favorite for wine and cigars.
