Oakcreek Homes For Sale
Nestled in Round Rock among a handful of subdivisions, Oakcreek is a neighborhood where basketball hoops line the streets, and the echoes of children and garden hoses and the soft rustling of trees fill the atmosphere.

City Data lists that families occupy 77.5% of the homes in Oakcreek. With a population of 762, that means roughly 590 families live there. In other words, children who live in Oakcreek have plenty of neighborhood friends.

Oakcreek also proudly belongs to the Round Rock ISD. School spirit reigns over Oakcreek, where nearly every house has a Round Rock extracurricular activity banner displayed on the front lawn.

In warmer weather—which occurs more often than not in Central Texas—the sound of clinking swings and splashing from the neighborhood pool and playscape animate the streets. Located right off of Oaklands Street, the Oakcreek Association Pool and jungle gym serve as convenient activities for residents throughout the subdivision. Myers said he “entertains his toddler by taking him to the pool and pushing him on the swing.”
Oakcreek dwellers can hike, bike, or run to Round Rock’s namesake—The Round Rock—a historical platform that protrudes from Brushy Creek. One hundred sixty three years ago, the sedimentary formation helped pioneers creek-cross. Today, it provides a nice photo opportunity, or, in typical Austin-area fashion, one could meditate atop it.

There, residents can access community resources such as City Hall, the Public Library, and the Chamber of Commerce. And who said living in the suburbs means sacrificing good food?

Round Rock also is becoming known as a major medical center, with St. David’s, Seton, and Scott & White offering new facilities. The Texas A&M Health Science Center campus and the Texas State University Student Health Center also are in Round Rock, and St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center is at the subdivision entrance.
