Situated between Mopac and 183 to the east and west, bordered by Duval Rd to the north and Wind River Rd to the south.
Mesa Park was first developed in 1972, just one year before the current L.C. Anderson High School was built nearby. It was around this time that Willie Nelson and other “alternative” artists like Stevie Ray Vaughn were first establishing Austin’s music scene, while the city’s first major tech wave brought plants from large companies like IBM, Motorola and Tracor into the city, along with their thousands of employees.
These major developments to the city’s culture and industries are arguably what defined the Austin that we know today, and brought about a developmental boom that established many Austin neighborhoods such as Mesa Park.
