Welcome to the Brentwood Neighborhood Association website

Brentwood is a neighborhood in north central Austin, Texas. The area is bordered by Burnet Road on the west, Lamar Blvd on the east, 45th Street on the south and Justin Lane on the north. The City of Austin annexed most of the neighborhood in 1946 and purchased the land next to Brentwood Elementary to establish the neighborhood's Brentwood Park in 1951. Running through the middle of the area is a tree-lined street named Arroyo Seco which follows a creek of the same name. Our annual holiday luminaria display is just one of our many beloved traditions.

Brentwood is now a trendy and popular area that is home to gorgeous tree-lined streets and established homes. Many of the homes are bungalow style homes, normally one story, and have a low to medium pitched roof and simple, rectangular shapes. Many were originally two bedrooms and were purchased by GIs who wanted to start families following WWII. The combination of original residents who never left the 'hood and a growing number of young professsionals have built a strong community which fits perfectly with the style of Austin. 

All residents within the boundaries of Brentwood are encouraged to join the Brentwood Neighborhood Association and become a partner as we work to create a welcoming and inclusive community of engaged citizens.  The best way to reach out to the Officers and Steering Committee members if you have questions, concerns or ideas is to email us at brentwood.austin@gmail.com .  People can also join our official Yahoo Group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/brentwood-na/join to follow communications on our neighhorhood forum.

Welcome to Brentwood, y'all!!!
