View of Oak Ridge from County Road 273 on the east side of Oak Ridge. There is a Hike and Bike Trail planned for alongside County Road 273 which has recently been renamed Horizon Park. Additionally, soon CR 273 will go in to the Leander TOD. I can’t wait to ride my bike to the TOD and take the CapitalMetro train into Austin Texas.

Oak Ridge is a neighborhood in Leander, Texas, Williamson County of about 500 homes. Several builders have built homes in this established neighborhood including Buffington and Scott Felder. Located accross from Pleasant Hill Elementary off East Crystal Falls Parkway near County Road 273. The last 3 lots have been built on. The 2 on Laurel Glen had homes built on them in 2008. The last one just off of Laurel Glen was built in 2014. I live in Oak Ridge and enjoy it because of the middle of the road home owners association (HOA), lower home prices, amenities and laid back atmosphere. The Oak Ridge HOA (Oak Ridge Homeowners Association, Inc.) is mandatory in most of the neighborhood, but not too fussy, nor too lax. In my opinion they are just about right. HOA dues are not real high per year. I also love the amount of mature trees in our subdivision, especially large old live oak trees. I have 2 in my back yard, one huge old wonderful tree that almost shades my entire back yard and a smaller, younger tree that is fast growing and shading more every year. An arborist dated my largest Live Oak at 125 to 200 years old. The Oak Ridge park is a great area to recreate with tennis courts, basketball courts, sports court; swimming pool with lounging deck, picnic tables and bar-b-q grills in a shady treed area inside the fenced swimming pool area. There are also large grassy areas ro run and play, a large children’s playscape and swings in an all weather pea gravel pit. My grandkids enjoyed the Easter Egg Hunt the HOA put on in the spring. There are neighborhood Garage Sales as well. I like the sense of community that neighborhood functions afford. Oak ridge leander park

Oak Ridge Leander TX Community Park Play Structure

An all weather pea gravel surface and several high quality play structures create a wonderful play area for children to enjoy. It has a large shade structure above the play area now so you don’t have to worry about the kids getting too much sun. When I took the photo above, the shade structure was not in place yet.
