Cedar Park

Cedar Park was ranked as one of the top 10 cities to raise a family in Jan 2017!  It was named for a park that was a rail stop in the late 1800s and was incorporated as a City in 1973, and, true to it's namesake Cedar Park now features 47 City parks and 22 miles of trails.

City of Cedar Park, TX

This community is situated on the northern border of Austin just 17 miles from downtown and has all the advantages of being located close to city living and attractions, while also giving residents all the advantages of small town living.

The new roadways have been an integral part of Cedar Park’s growth as a community – including connections from 1431 and Parmer Lane to I-35; 1431 to 183 and 183A; and SH-45, which connects 183 to I-35 and acts as a corridor for Cedar Park. Parmer Lane also extends from 620 to Highway 29 in Georgetown, and the upper deck of 183, 183A and SH-45 goes all the way to Lakeline Mall, making it easy for residents to get just about anywhere.

Capital Metro also operates an urban rail commuter rail service that extends from Leander through northwest and east Austin and into the downtown area – including a stop near Lakeline Mall in Cedar Park (visit www.capmetro.org for schedules.)

Students in Cedar Park attend either the Leander Independent School District or the Round Rock Independent School District, and both are highly acclaimed school districts for both academics and sports programs. Texas State University also has a satellite campus here – the Round Rock Higher Education Center (RRHEC), which provides students with professional development and adult continuing education and also offers the opportunity to attain associate’s, bachelor’s, or a master’s degree from Texas State. The Texas State RRHEC brings together Austin Community College, Texas State University-San Marcos and Temple College at Taylor. In addition, Round Rock Premium Outlets, IKEA, Southwestern University, Round Rock Hospital, Scott & White and the Dell Diamond are only minutes away.

Home prices here range between the $200s to the $450s, with lots of executives choosing to make their home here because of the area’s proximity to such major employers as Dell, Samsung or Freescale. The Cedar Park Regional Medical Center, managed by Seton Hospital, opened here in 2006, and is a major health care provider for area residents.

Cedar Park is also home to Twin Creeks, a 760-acre residential, country club, and golf course community complete with a water park. Twin Creeks was the first private country club in Cedar Park and includes a Fred Couples-designed signature 18-hole golf course. Located approximately three miles south of Highway 183 at the intersection of Anderson Mill Road and Cypress Creek Road, homes in Twin Creeks are priced from the $300,000’s to the $500,000’s, with plans for homes built in later phases to range in price as high as $1 million.
