"Parker Lane is a slice of the early 1970s"

Someday this area may be more appreciated. It has beautiful green spaces at Mabel Davis Park and Heritage Oaks Parks. The other reviewers don't seem to know that Parker Lane is diverse and it has some high-end real estate especially the area known as Travis Heights East. The more affordable housing is on the south end of Parker Lane, south of Oltorf. Oltorf is just now starting to have interesting coffee shops since as Cafe Creme but the area has long had a wonderful array of ethnic restaurants and a few food trailers have opened up. The houses on the north end of Parker Lane are expensive and Edgewick is expensive but there are affordable options south of Oltorf. Parker Lane is a wide street and has nice bike lanes. You can ride all the way north to the South Shore area and easy access to the hike and bike trails and boardwalk around Lady Bird Lake. I appreciate the proximity to the South Congress Avenue area without the expensive living there. This area was built up in the early 1970s so it has that architecture that reflects that time. We didn't find Linder to be overwhelmed with students when our daughter went there. The middle-school has a good magnet program and the high school isn't great but it is still sending kids off to college.
