Living Next to the Creek in Brushy Creek Texas
As the name implies, the community is defined by the creek that bisects it. Brushy Creek runs through Cedar Park, Brushy Creek, and Round rock before snaking its way further east on a 69 mile journey. A beautiful respite from the heat of a summer’s day, the creek has always attracted people to the calm waters and mystical moments of sunlight filtered through the dense streambank foliage.
In prehistoric times, it had everything a person could ask for: trees for fires, water from the creek, rocks to make tools, and fish for eating. Honestly, not much has changed, except that most folks head to Hill Country Kettle Korn instead of catching fish.
A Tale of Two Sides of the Creek
The creek cuts from west to east, creating two sides to Brushy Creek where both sides are fantastic and equally as nice to call home. The north side is highlighted by large clumps of trees, beautifully large plots of land, and a very open feel. The south side of the creek has curved, manicured neighborhoods dotted with cul-de-sacs and numerous parks.

Did I mention parks? Frankly, it’s hard to walk five minutes without running into a park, pulling out your favorite novel and lounging under a shade tree. In fact…
Brushy Creek is almost entirely residential areas, parks, and schools
