Sunset Acres is bounded by Interstate 35 on the west, Parker Drive on the north, Del Sol Drive on the south and Parker Drive on the east. The ZIP code for this Hays County community is 78666.
This community is largely residential, consisting mostly of single-family homes on well-shaded lots. However, the far southeastern corner of the community hosts several dozen town home/condominium units. A scattering of commercial offerings can be found throughout the neighborhood as well.
Easy access to the nearby interstate is a clear benefit of living in Sunset Acres, but this is not the only attraction. Immediately south of the community, along FM 3407, is the Central Texas Medical Center. This medical facility not only offers convenient health-care options for area residents, but it is a substantial area employer as well.
A chain of parkland is located within a half mile northeast of this neighborhood. It consists of the John J. Stokes San Marcos River City Park, Ramon Lucio Park, and Rio Vista Park, among others. The recreational facilities offered there include jogging and biking trails, playing fields, playgrounds, tennis courts and basketball courts, as well as plenty of green space for picnics and other activities.
North of the parkland, still just a few miles from Sunset Acres, is Southwest Texas State University, the pride and joy of San Marcos. This prominent university enrolls more than 20,000 students and hosts a golf course, Bobcat soccer complex, and Bobcat football stadium.
