The city of Rollingwood is a vibrant community nestled between Austin and West Lake Hills, on the west bank of Lake Austin, with a population of 1,500. A community rich in heritage and tradition, Rollingwood was founded and developed in 1955 by George Hatley and incorporated as a city in 1963. The city is adjacent to and west of Austin and only minutes from the State Capitol. Rollingwood serves as home to a diverse population and features a unique mix of residential architecture. Rollingwood is entirely in the highly acclaimed Eanes Independent School District. There is an active neighborhood association, beautiful parks, and unique shopping and restaurants. Like many small, fully developed communities across the country, Rollingwood is discovering new possibilities. A recently developed commercial district featuring eateries, retail businesses, and professional offices has helped position Rollingwood as a vital community for the future. Trader Joe’s made its Austin-area debut in Rollingwood with an 11,000 square-foot store in the fall of 2013. Arise Austin Medical Center also opened for business in Rollingwood in 2013 when it acquired Austin Surgical Hospital. The new, full-service hospital aims to provide the Austin community with choice in healthcare with its physician-owned structure. The Rollingwood Women’s Club hosts events including a 5K Run and July Fourth Parade, and the Rollingwood Neighborhood Association hosts the Spring Egg Hunt. Due to its flat topography, Rollingwood is very walking and biking friendly. Proximity to Zilker Park affords Rollingwood residents easy entry to Austin events, such as the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
