Welcome to Clarksville

The historic, vibrant community where growth is synonymous with restoration and maintaining a rich culture of friendliness

Conveniently nestled between the bustle of Downtown Austin and the Johnson Creek Greenbelt, the Clarksville neighborhood is admired for its historic architecture and walkable, oak-lined streets. Within easy distance of both Downtown and Lady Bird Lake, Clarksville residents have the best of three worlds — quiet, residential living, outdoor recreation, and urban entertainment.
 
One of the three neighborhoods within the West Austin Historic District, Clarksville is packed with its own rich history and charm. The neighborhood is the oldest remaining Freedman’s Town west of the Mississippi River, and its residents go to great lengths to preserve the community’s heritage, culture, and verdant beauty. 
 
Thanks to its long establishment and continuous growth, Clarksville is brimming with architectural diversity. Adorable Craftsman bungalows are just as easily found as lavish new-builds, single-family homes, and studio apartments in this area, with a great number of historic homes sprinkled in as well.

From eclectic restaurants within walking distance to an abundance of verdant local parks, this family-centered community is a harmonious blend of urban and suburban.

Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping

The retail and dining scenes in Clarksville are conveniently spread throughout the neighborhood, making it possible to encounter drool-worthy eateries and niche shops on nearly every street. Local is king here, and shops such as Julian Gold, Elle’s Boutique, and By George continue the tradition of proving just how fashionable the city of Austin can be.
 
Clarksville embraces the Austin area’s reputation for culinary diversity, with bold and innovative restaurants on nearly every corner. Jeffrey’s, for instance, is among the best-known fine dining restaurants in Austin, known for its dry-aged prime beef, sophisticated interior, and seasonal menu. At Cipollina, high-end Italian cuisine pairs with wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas and handmade pasta.

Things to Do

While there are a few small parks within the bounds of Clarksville, the area is additionally just moments away from some of Austin’s best recreation, such as the Lady Bird Lake - Lamar Beach MetroPark. Popular for its hike and bike trail, a pedestrian bridge over the lake, and boat ramp, this gorgeous park is a peaceful place to enjoy a stroll and take in the sunshine. Clarksville also rests along the Johnson Creek Greenbelt, whose leafy trail is paved and leads to several smaller, more secluded paths.
