The Maple Run subdivision if one of many areas in southwestern Austin that comprise the region we know as Oak Hill. Essentially there are two distinctive developments within the entire neighborhood: the older Maple Run which was built in the early to mid- 1980s and the newer Deer Park at Maple Run of the mid to late 1990s. Winding streets lead from one area to the other and you can easily find yourself in the older Maple to the north of Alexandria Drive or the Deer Park at Maple Run which is south to Deer Lane. The entire area is situated between Brodie Lane and South Mopac Expressway.

Maple Run Austin Attractions
Like much of southwest Austin, the Maple Run homes sit on top of the environmentally sensitive Edwards Aquifer. This underground water-collection region is critical to the health of the entire region and services water from Austin to San Antonio. The nearby Karst Preserve is part of this underground cave network and rock formation that allows water to be filtered into the huge reservoir. The Texas Cave Management Association and the City of Austin have combined forces to protect the caves and their inhabitants. If you’re interested in learning more about the aquifer system, Karst Preserve offers Cave Day each year in mid-March.
