FRANKLIN PARK AUSTIN
Franklin Park is a quiet, low-income neighborhood with very affordable housing. The neighborhood does not have many local restaurants or businesses; most of the area is low-rent apartments, small but well-kept homes, and commercial buildings and warehouses.
The neighborhood is fairly close to downtown and the University of Texas, so some students do live here. A notable feature of the neighborhood is the large state park that borders the eastern side. It offers opportunities for hiking, biking, camping, fishing, and nature walking.
