At one time, Cedar Park was so relatively so far removed from Austin that it was not considered part of the Greater Austin collection of communities. Yet with the expansion of Highway 183, new toll roads and the opening of the Metropolitan Rail System, Cedar Park is now a thriving, bustling community just 15 minutes away from downtown Austin.
Cedar Park’s growth is attributed to many factors but Cedar Park has not lost its charm nor its personality. Cedar Park is home to over 50,000 residents and covers more than 25 square miles and officially became an incorporated city in 1973.
Though Cedar Park has experienced what some would call rapid growth, the area’s new developments and master planned communities contribute to the charm and friendliness that defines Cedar Park. Cedar Park’s commitment to community is evident by its dedication to green space and preservation. With over 500 acres of parkland, more than 40 parks and an outdoor community center complete with its own clubhouse and pavilion, Cedar Park always features outdoor activities from arts and craft festivals, farmers markets and musical events.
Cedar Park is also home to the recently completed Cedar Park Center, home to more than 100 events throughout the year featuring top musical acts, performances and professional sporting events. The Twin Creeks Country Club offers championship-caliber links and the popular Avery Ranch Golf Club is a short drive away.
Cedar Park homes for sale provide a wide variety of starter homes priced under $100,000 as well as higher end homes in one of the many master-planned communities approaching $1 million or more. Cedar Park is part of the Leander Independent School District, a district with more than 20 elementary schools, eight middle schools and five high schools.
