Montropolis Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Located conveniently close to downtown Austin, the Montropolis neighborhood is smack in the middle of everything there is to see and do in this Texas city. This neighborhood is bounded by Grove Boulevard on the west, U.S. highway 183 on the east, and State Highway 71 on the south. The community comes to a point to the north, where parkland and river meet the highway. The aptly named Montropolis Drive traverses the neighborhood, running roughly north to south. The zip code for this Travis County community is 78741.
This comparatively large community consists of more than 2.5 square miles and is home to over 6,900 residents. There is a little bit of something for everyone in Montropolis, with the Roy G. Guerrero Park, the Riverside Golf Course, and the Austin – Bergstrom International Airport all immediately adjacent, just outside of neighborhood bounds.
The parkland covers more than 362 acres and offers a long list of amenities for Montropolis residents. Among these are a picnic shelter, baseball and softball fields, volleyball courts, a playground, and more than two miles of hiking and biking trails. The adjacent 18-hole golf course also offers practice facilities and a pro shop. After 18 holes on these pristine greens, you’ll be ready for a meal at the Tin Cup Grill.
For residents who prefer culture and shopping to outdoor recreation, downtown Austin is located within five minutes of Montropolis. To the northwest, on the other side of the river, are a variety of entertainment, shopping, and dining options in downtown Austin. Here is also where you’ll find the Texas State Capitol and the University of Texas – Austin campus. Several medical centers and golf courses surround the campus, as does the Huston Tillotson College, another option for higher education in the immediate area.
