Parks and Trails: More than 500 of the 1450 acres at Wildhorse are reserved for parks and open space. A network of hike and bike trails weaves through the trees and gentle hills of the Wildhorse community. In addition, nine city, county, and district parks also lie within a 12-minute radius of Wildhorse. The closest, less than 5 minutes away, is Walter E. Long Park. With a fishing lake, four boat ramps, nature preserves, hike/bike trails, picnic areas and more, there’s no end to the adventures you can create.
With its focus on groundbreaking educational approaches, Manor ISD earned a visit in 2013 from the President of the United States. It has been named a District of Innovation by the State of Texas. This prestigious designation awards more local control over instructional decision-making, empowering MISD to think differently and innovate. As a result of this expanded freedom, MISD has developed three distinct educational approaches to support diversity in learning styles:
Some schools employ a project-based learning model, in which students are encouraged to communicate and collaborate to create ideas and solve problems that develop higher-order thinking skills.
Others feature fine arts academies that focus on a creative curriculum to support whole-child learning and boost student engagement in core subjects.
Finally, MISD offers an International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum – which encourages learning from a global perspective – at a number of schools. At Wildhorse, families can choose a personal path to successful learning.

A network of new, expansive roads makes traveling by car a no-hassle option in any direction. An express bus to downtown Austin is offered by the city’s transit system, Capital Metro. Cap Metro also provides a local bus route through nearby Manor. In addition, Wildhorse has set aside land for a station on the proposed Manor/Elgin rail line to Austin. Active commuters will enjoy riding the A2M trail, a paved bicycle route stretching from Austin to Manor.
Finally, the 85 acres reserved at Wildhorse for office and retail space will offer residents the chance to bike or even walk short distances to work. And should your travel involve destinations further afield, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is just 15 minutes to the south.
