Sendera Mesa Neighborhood Park/Slaughter Creek at Twin Oaks Greenbelt/South Austin Neighborhood Park


09.15.15 Posted in Uncategorized by

Sendera Mesa Neighborhood Park (4717 Davis Lane) is a small park and only a tiny portion of it is developed. It’s not a runnable park; just a short, flat sidewalk bisects it. It does have ample parking and a nice playground. A swimming pool for the residents is next to it and it is highly over-chlorinated, lending an unpleasant smell to the park.

Slaughter Creek at Twin Oaks Greenbelt (10520 1/2 S 1st Street) is 11 acres of parkland that is undeveloped and not runnable.

South Austin Neighborhood Park (1100 Cumberland Road) has many great features including a large and high quality tennis center, rec center, sports courts, a nice playground, and pretty shaded picnic areas. Some sidewalk meanders through the spaces only totally about 0.56 miles and it’s not the shape where you’d do laps and laps, so it’s not really runnable either (though a fine place to visit for other use). Several lots make parking here easy.
