Profile...
The Swede Hill neighborhood is located near downtown Austin, TX, with a rich history, and diverse makeup.  Settlement of the area began in the 1870's by Swedish immigrants and a few examples of the early architecture still remain.  Today, the neighborhood is comprised of many older and newer structures and is home to an eclectic mix of residents.

Swede Hill Neighborhood Association is dedicated to managing and vocalizing the interests of the neighborhood owners and residents.  It holds monthly meetings, participates in broader neighborhood and City organizations and initiatives, and generally seeks to ensure continued, thoughtful growth and improvement of the neighborhood.
 

Swede Hill Holiday Party and Hot Chocolate Contest... December 10th, 2017... Winner Marla!
A fun neighborhood gathering to celebrate the season, spread a little holiday cheer, and sample a few sips... and why not make a contest out of it?!   Several of our neighbors whipped together their favorite concoctions, along with a few tasty treats to tickle the taste buds, and setup in Swede Hill Park to brave the scrutiny of their fellow contestants and samplers.  It was a beautiful day for neighbors, kids and pets to share some smiles, stories, and nibbles.  It might be argued that sampling was more fun than voting, but at the end of the day, there was a winner to declare.  BIG CONGRATS to MARLA TORRADO for coming up with the neighbors' favorite blend of chocolaty liquid gold... no doubt, she has set the bar for next years' showdown.  For more images from the day, click the image to the right, or click HERE.
 
Swede Hill Mulch-A-Thon Park Day... March 4th, 2017... Another Success!
The Swede Hill Mulch-A-Thon Park Day—part of the Austin Parks Foundation's It's My Park Day Spring event—was a huge success.  The rains held off long enough for a group of our neighborhood volunteers to shovel and spread countless barrows of fresh bark mulch amongst the drip lines of the giant heritage trees in our Swede Hill Park.  Special thanks to the volunteers for giving-up a couple hours of their time.  Very special thanks to the organizers for fetching tools and give-aways, supplying refreshments and general good cheer.  And finally, a big shout-out to Austin Parks Foundation for providing the mulch, tools, t-shirts and more! Most thankful of all are, our beautiful park trees are very appreciative of the special attention they received this year.  For more images from the day, click the image to the right, or click HERE.
