If you’re looking for a close-in, convenient, suburban community near Austin, moving to Cedar Park north of the capital might be the right move for you.
With an estimated population of more than 65,000 in 2015, the once-sleepy Hill Country town has grown dramatically since 2000. Actually, pretty much all of Williamson County has grown dramatically since 2000 as more people have migrated to the Austin/Central Texas area. The trend is expected to continue for many years to come.
Located 15-20 minutes from downtown Austin, Cedar Park was founded in 1887 and incorporated as a city in 1973. Now the third largest city in the Austin area, Cedar Park attracts a diverse population, mainly because of its close proximity to Austin, the Texas Hill Country, and to major employers. Cedar Park also boasts of its 860 acres of park space.
Independent evaluators and ratings services give Cedar Park high marks for safety, livability, education, and household income. Home prices here range between the $200s to the $450s. Many executives live here because of the area’s proximity to major employers such as Dell, Samsung, and Freescale Semiconductor. The Cedar Park Regional Medical Center, managed by Seton Hospital, opened here in 2006, and is a major health care provider for area residents.
New roads and highways have spurred Cedar Park’s growth. They include connections from 1431 and Parmer Lane to I-35; 1431 to 183 and 183A; 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. In other words, it’s easy for Cedar Park 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). In addition, Round Rock Premium Outlets, IKEA, Southwestern University, Round Rock Hospital, Scott & White and the Dell Diamond are nearby.
Students in Cedar Park attend either the Leander Independent School District or the Round Rock Independent School District, and both districts are highly regarded for their academics and sports programs.
The nearby Round Rock Higher Education Center (RRHEC) provides professional development and continuing education. It also offers the opportunity to earn associate, bachelor, and master degrees from Texas State University. The RRHEC brings together higher education resources from Austin Community College, Texas State University-San Marcos and Temple College at Taylor.
More than two-thirds of Cedar Park residents have at least some college education and nearly half hold a four-year degree or better, the city says. The largest portion of the population is under the age of 40 years old and the median household income is $74,156.
