Rosedale Real Estate

Rosedale is a neighborhood in north-central Austin near MoPac Highway. It is bounded by Lamar Boulevard to the east, Shoal Creek to the west, Hancock Drive to the north, and 38th Street to the south. Rosedale contains some 1,200 households, as well as a park, a library, and a medical complex close at hand.

Built on farm and dairy land during the late 1800's and early 1900's, Rosedale has preserved many of its original houses and architecture. The large trees which provide shade to the neighborhood are also legacies left by residents from the early 1900s. That is not to say, however, that Rosedale is behind the times; new buildings, homes, and facilities, as well as renovations of existing structures, are just a few of the ways in which Rosedale displays a lively spirit.

One of the central features of the Rosedale neighborhood is Ramsey Park, found between 42nd and 44th streets on Rosedale Avenue. This 5-acre park, partially designed and landscaped by a local Eagle Scout, has a swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts, playground, and, of course, picnic tables, and is a popular place for residents to gather, exercise, or just hang out.

The Rosedale community is very active, led by a well-organized neighborhood association. Formed in the 1970s following successful efforts by area residents to stop the closure of neighborhood Fire Station #12, the Rosedale NA sponsors neighborhood activities, advocates local positions on city issues, and works to promote the beauty and safety of Rosedale.
