Over 700 Acres of Natural Open Space – Sweetwater devotes half of its acreage to parks, trails and natural open space, preserving beautiful hills, canyons, bluffs and creeks for residents to enjoy from their own backyards, or out on the trails.
Highly Regarded Lake Travis ISD Schools – Ranked in the top 2% of Texas school districts by SchoolDigger.com, Lake Travis ISD makes Sweetwater a great place to get an education.
