Our beautiful outdoor common areas are the perfect spot to step outside and enjoy the weather in Austin. We also have plenty of organized outdoor community activities for our residents to enjoy daily. Here are our top six activities to do around our community:

  • 1. Instead of reading a book inside, step outside and read your book in our courtyard.
  • 2. Connecting with nature is a great way to get creative. Try drawing, journaling, or painting outdoors.

  • 4. Have a phone call outside with a loved one in our courtyard for a change of scenery.
