“Modern Living for the 1950’s…and beyond!” so states the Wilshire Wood/Delwood I neighborhood association website. The website’s quirky motif says a lot about this area: it is a place to live amongst residents who care about their community and take pride in the beauty and unique personality of “WWDI”. Just East of IH35, south of Airport Blvd, and hugging Patterson Park on the west, Wilshire Wood offers neighborhood living with convenience and proximity to work, school, and recreation activities. Patterson Park offers a wide-variety of activities including pool, tennis, basketball, and it’s newest addition, a community built pride and joy: Patterson Park Mini-Ramp! Newly constructed walking/jogging path meanders around the perimiter of the park. Local residents have also been committed to “It’s My Park!” clean-up and beautification efforts to keep the area a welcome respite from city life. Food options abound in the area offering mostly chain food hot spots but with a little sleuthing and a few minutes of driving along the edges of Wilshire Wood (Manor, Airport, IH 35) you will also find Austin favorites like Hoovers Soul Food Cooking, Hornito’s Tex Mex Cafe, and East Side Cafe. Cherrywood Coffee House also welcomes you with food and an artistic showcase venue in nearby Cherrywood Neighborhood. DO not miss a chance to stop in for an old-fashioned shoe shine and barber shop cut in Kerwin’s Delwood Barber shop - rumor has it you better be ready to talk longhorn sports and walk out in style! Find Old Austin service and locally arranged flowers at Airport Florist Inc. or discover the beauty and satisfaction of shopping super local (from your very own neighbor) at Glademade Art and Greeting Cards by Glade Whitworth. Find your updated 1950’s residence or buy a house that needs your special touch to make it home in Wilshire Wood/Delwood I!
