Commons Area

You’ll need an electronic key to get into the pool, playground, and sports courts. You can request a key by emailing amenityaccess@goodwintx.com.

The commons area is home to a private club for Balcones Woods’s residents and their guests. It is located at 11204 Alhambra Drive. The pool is open May through September where the tennis, volleyball, basketball courts and playground are open year-round, accessible with your electronic key. The clubhouse is available for private parties or neighborhood events.

In the warmer months, this is the hub of activity and a great place enjoy time with your family, friends and neighbors. Our homeowner’s association dues support the improvement and maintenance of this beautiful commons area.


Volunteering

Volunteerism is the backbone that keeps our neighbor vibrant and ensures our ongoing strength as one of the most desirable areas in Austin. We welcome volunteers to run for office as a committee head, operating committee officer or board member.
Just as important are neighbors volunteering to work with the various committees on the day-to-day activities, which keep our association functioning and provide the outstanding amenities enjoyed by all residents. Your input and participation are always welcomed and appreciated!
