Interestingly, the city of Lakeway actually began with the construction of a small hotel, The Lakeway Inn, in 1963. The inn has now evolved into Lakeway Resort and Spa, and the surrounding areas have flourished with home buyers in the last 50 years, due to the lifestyle that living on Lake Travis provides. The shores in Lakeway are scattered with marinas, docks, and swimming holes for lovers of all things aquatic. Living by the lake grants residents easy access to such activities as scuba diving, fishing, swimming, boating, picnicking, camping, and even zip lining – and Lake Travis is well-known throughout Texas for having some of the clearest water in the entire state.
The city’s community has been thriving in recent years as well. Local organizations such as the Greater Lakeway Wine Club, Arts Committee, Rotary Club, Toastmasters, Fiction Writers, and men’s and women’s golf clubs are extremely active, ensuring that there truly is something of interest for everyone. For residents interested in other activities, Lakeway has a Swim Center – open year-round, and including water slides, picnic tables, climbing walls, volleyball and basketball courts, and even a skate park. Lakeway Activity Center offers art classes, annual indoor garage sales, a brown bag lunch concert series, and a yearly visit with Santa during the holidays.
On top of its breathtaking water views, Lakeway contains over 100 acres of parkland and trails, and almost 500 acres of greenbelts. City Park, which spreads over 60 acres and can be reached by road or by water, has two miles of walking and jogging trails, a relaxing Butterfly Garden, a dog park, and a lovely beach with volleyball nets. For a quieter experience, Heritage Center Park is home to the Spirit of Freedom Monument, built to honor residents who have served in the armed forces. For fans of slightly more advanced climbs, Canyonlands is Lakeway’s newest park, which takes you on a stunning hike past pools and through forests to Rough Hollow Cove, an arm of Lake Travis. Dragon Park is a great experience for team sports – there is a playground, basketball court, athletic field for baseball or soccer, and a volleyball court.
