About Del Valle TX
Del Valle is a community to the southeast of Austin that encompasses a wide rural area. Until the last few years Del Valle was primarily a farming community and a community that had ties to the Bergstrom Air Force Base. Del Valle was largely undeveloped until the closure of Bergstrom AFB and the opening of the Austin-Bergstrom Intl Airport.
At this point, three schools had to be moved. They were located in areas with room for growth. And grow they did. Within a short time there were large new home developments being built around the schools. Add to this mixture the addition of SH 130 toll way and you have a community that is primed and ready for growth. The community of Del Valle offers homes in neighborhoods with pools and greenbelts or if you want a few acres of your own, they are still available in the area also. A neighborhood atmosphere with the convenience of a vibrant and entertaining city such as Austin is making Del Valle appealing to many buyers.
Del Valle Location and Schools
You will find Del Valle itself situated on HWY 71 east of HWY 183 in 78617. Small businesses are located on the north side and the Austin-Bergstrom Itnl Airport covers the south. While Del Valle is small and unincorporated it does have its own school district. The Del Valle ISD encompasses vast rural areas and small, pocket areas within Austin city limits. The district includes Hornsby Bend, Garfield, Creedmoor, Mustang Ridge and various smaller communities. The rapid growth put a strain on the Del Valle School District which has met the challenge and built new schools and other facilities while achieving a recognized status for most of its schools.
