I call this the Creative District because of the collaborative workspaces, art galleries and creative studios. The Canopy, Springdale General and ThinkEast are a few of the creative spaces in this quaint neighborhood. Sustainability and community is the essence of Springdale and Govalle. In fact, there are four urban farms that provide local ingredients to many Austin restaurants. If you have a green thumb, you’ll love East Austin Succulents, Tillery Plant Co., and other plant nurseries. This area has a lot of hidden gems like coffee and taco trucks, weird bodegas and meat markets. Springdale is a 10 minute drive to the airport and downtown. New construction homes and a new generation of homeowners are moving in and coexisting with legacy residents, which further adds to the charm and diversity.
