Two small community parks – Pan American Park and Mertz Park – are conveniently located within neighborhood bounds. Several medium-sized parks are located within a few miles to the north of Holly. The most impressive parkland, however, is located to the south, along Town Lake/Lady Bird Lake. Here, you’ll find a wide expanse of parkland known as Lakeshore Park, Pleasant Valley Park, and Roy G. Guerrero Park, as well as the Riverside Golf Course.
Roy G. Guerrero Park alone spans 363 acres and offers a long list of amenities. One of the newest and most popular additions to this park is the 2.3-mile crushed gravel hiking/biking trail, part of the Town Lake trail system. Other amenities include three volleyball courts, four baseball fields, 12 softball fields, playground, and a picnic shelter with plenty of picnic tables for your next family gathering.
For local shopping, Holly residents are lucky enough to have a retail center within neighborhood bounds. The Govalle Shopping Center, situated in the community’s northeast corner, offers an H-E-B grocery store, Family Dollar, and AutoZone, among other merchants. What’s better than having a grocery store within walking distance of home?
Holly is also within a few miles of Huston Tillotson College and the much larger University of Texas – Austin campus. Near the UT campus is also where you’ll find the Texas State Capitol. The area surrounding the college campus and capitol building offers plenty of culture, as well as dining and entertainment options, which means there is no shortage of things to see and do within a few miles of Holly.
