Small town living in Kyle isn’t so small as you have plenty of things to do around town and in neighboring cities. The place to start is by finding the right community.
The Crosswinds community in Kyle, for example, offers many options for things to do without leaving the community. The Windy Point Amenity Center features a giant pool with a splash pad, shaded structures, a playground, and a grilling area.
It also has hike and bike trails interwoven throughout the community. Whenever you want to get your heart rate up or simply take a stroll, you’ll be able to do that right in Crosswinds. Here are some more things to do outside of the community.
Play Games and See Movies
EVO Entertainment Kyle has everything you want in a movie theater and then some. This includes bowling, billiards, an arcade, and a bar and grill. They have happy hours Monday through Friday until 6 pm where they serve drafts, spirits, and wine. While you can catch all the latest movies at EVO, you can see old favorites or movies you missed with Flashback Cinema.
Explore New Parks in Buda
Buda City Park is undergoing an overhaul that will add small and large children’s playgrounds with ADA compliant playground equipment, a splash pad, pavilion improvements, new restrooms, and games and grilling areas. It’ll have a new amphitheater for concerts and festivals. The city’s goal is to hold arts festivals and plays in the park.
The city hopes to have a larger trails system that connects the City Park to nearby green spaces, such as Stagecoach Park, Bradfield Village Park, and the Downtown Greenbelt. The plan is to complete the construction in time for the 2020 Weiner Dog Races.
Next door is the future John D. and Byrd Mims Garison Memorial Park. Buda’s vision for Garison Memorial Park is to highlight the beauty of the naturally-preserved landscape for future generations to enjoy.
It’ll be an outdoor adventure area with its trails, nature center, restrooms, canoe loading dock, rentable pavilion facility, and bird watching stations. The master plan for the park includes camping with a fire pit, bathhouse, fishing, picnic areas, and a treehouse.

Jump Around the Jumpy Place

Help the Community
There are many volunteering opportunities with nonprofit organizations. The Community Impact has a comprehensive Volunteer Guide for organizations in Buda, Kyle, and San Marcos. The guide lists opportunities to support children, take care of the environment, feed residents in need, serve seniors, and help animals.
