Clarksville is a small, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood nestled just west of downtown and Lake Bird Lake. Often considered part of downtown Austin, this highly sought-after neighborhood is only 300 acres in size and provides walkability that rivals high-rise condo living in the downtown core. Established in the 1870s, Clarksville is on the National Register of Historic Places. Its most notable resident is the 500+-year-old Treaty Oak, the last surviving member of the Council Oaks. Long-standing Clarksville spots like Nau’s soda fountain, Jeffreys, Josephine House, Cipollina, and Clarke’s Oyster Bar, mingle with new and notable restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, and more. Bordered by Lamar Street (east) and MoPac (west), Clarksville is convenient for getting almost anywhere in the Austin metro area. Characterized by quiet streets, modest bungalows, and iconic cafes and shops, Clarksville is a central gem for single-family homes and less car dependency in fast-growing Austin.
