Shady Halloween is calm, full of people who care. If they see something suspicious, they will report it. If people are driving in the neighborhood streets, the people outside will wave.
The only downfall is that it is all connected to a heavily trafficked road. There aren't enough lanes, lights, or stop signs to help the people get on the main road from the side roads without risking someone running you over
Shady Hollow is an amazing, family friendly, fun subdivision to be a part of. This neighborhood houses two pools, three parks, three top rated schools, and multiple holiday parties, including the 4th of July Parade. Located in Southwest Austin, Texas, Shady Hollow is the perfect place to start a family.
