About Buda

Breathe Easy Here

An inviting, friendly community with small-town charm and plans for the future! We are an oasis of relaxation at the edge of civilization, unspoiled by the pace of Austin and San Antonio’s big city ways.


Discover Buda

Buda, Texas is located 15 miles south of Downtown Austin along the I-35 Corridor in the Texas Hill Country region. Visitors will find it convenient to stop at our destinations along I-35, but will experience the true heart of Buda just off the beaten path of the interstate in Downtown Buda.

Outdoor Capital of Texas

With more parkland per capita than any city in the state, the Texas State Legislature named Buda, Texas the Outdoor Capital of Texas. There are many outdoor recreational opportunities including:
  • Historic Stagecoach Park: a 54-acre nature park with walking trails and scenic features
  • Buda City Park: where festivals and events take place
  • Jackson Tyler Norris Memorial Skate Park
  • Buda Sportplex: for baseball, softball and other sporting events
There are eight other designated parks with green spaces and playscapes throughout the City to enjoy. Explore the hike and bike trails along our scenic parks and natural areas with wildflower meadows.
Thorough planning has allowed the city to maintain such a significant amount of open space and parkland. These characteristics help make Buda a truly special community and helped us receive the designation as a “Certified Scenic City.”
