|Location||1301 Shoal Creek Blvd., Austin, Texas|
House Park opened in 1939 along Shoal Creek, just down the hill from the old campus of Austin High School near downtown. The stadium was built on land donated by Edward M. House, a former diplomat and adviser to Woodrow Wilson. House Park was later dedicated to the memory of the Austin High students that lost their lives serving in World War I and World War II.
High School Sports
As of 2012[update], the stadium still serves as the home stadium for Austin High, as well as Anderson, McCallum and Lanier High Schools. The absence of a track sets it apart from most other high school stadiums in large cities, but it does also host soccer games and has in the past been the site of the Texas High School Lacrosse Championships.
House Park is home to the Austin Aztex of the USL PDL, which is 4th tier professional soccer league in the United States. The Aztex will be joining the USL Pro in 2015, which is a tier above where they are at now and will play in a league that serves largely as a development league for the MLS.
