Spring Fling

The Spring Fling is an event you don’t want to miss. It was a great success last year and fun for all.
Everyone in the neighborhood is invited.
New neighbors are encouraged to attend for a great chance to meet old-timers and not-so-old-timers.

We have activities planned for all ages, including:
•Bounce House
•Pie Contest

COVNA will be providing food from Chipotle Mexican Grill
and beer and non-alcoholic beverages.
Residents are requested to bring desserts to share.

A gift card will be awarded to the winner of the pie contest.
If you a supreme baker, bring your famous pie to the party for a chance at the title
“Best Baker in Castlewood Forest-Oak Valley.”

For more information, contact Ron Mattison : or 512 417-5227.


Less than 90 households have renewed membership or joined COVNA so far this year.
Our neighborhood association works hard for you. At $10 a year per household, membership is a bargain.

A membership form is on the inside of the hard copy newsletter. You can print a membership form by clicking here.
