The city of Austin, Texas is located on the edge of what is known as Hill Country. As a whole, it has varied terrain which is very hilly in the west, while the east side tends to flatten out to more rolling hills. South Creek, based in southern Austin, is moderately hilly. While it is certainly not San Francisco or Seattle, nor can it be compared to the flatlands of the Kansas Prairie as it is somewhat in the middle. You are likely to encounter some inclines and declines during your walk around the area, but nothing that will trouble you too much or cause a need for specific attire.
As a city location, South Creek is pretty much all artificially built-up. Having said this, there are a few large greenways nearby that you can visit which will give you the feeling of being absorbed in nature, for example, the close-to-hand Onion Creek.
South Creek is located close to the various large greenways in the south of Austin, next to the greenbelts. Just north of the neighborhood, you have the Williamson Creek Greenbelt. For a beautiful waterside walk, take a stroll along the creek and take in the beautiful scenery!

Just south of the area on Blue Meadow Drive, you have the Kendra Page Neighborhood Park.
