Welcome to Clarksville

Combining a small-town feel with big-city attractions
Named after its founder, Charles Clark, Clarksville was established as an independent area in 1871. Distinct from nearby neighborhoods like Enfield and Tarrytown, the town lies near Lady Bird Lake, Lamar Boulevard’s stylish commercial strip, and west of downtown, giving it easy access to Austin’s eclectic collection of restaurants, stores, bars, and businesses. It is best known for the ease with which residents can walk to coffee shops, galleries, parks, trails, and almost everything else downtown offers.
This small historic district is made up of a combination of condominiums, apartments, and houses. Many of the homes are older, which gives them a unique character, history, and charm. The apartments and condominiums are funky and trendy.
