About the City of Cedar Park

Cedar Park, Texas is a vibrant community situated on the northern border of Austin and just 17 miles from downtown. Cedar Park is named for an actual park that was a rail stop in the late 1800s. Cedar Park was incorporated as a City in 1973.  

True to its namesake, Cedar Park now features 46 City-maintained parks within about 1,000 acres of City-owned parkland, along with 34 miles of trails. Today’s population is about 83,159. Cedar Park is the next major employment hub of the Austin MSA with a median age of 34.74 years – 51.21 percent with a Bachelor’s Degree or higher. 

Cedar Park is home to two professional sports teams: the Texas Stars, AHL hockey team affiliate of the NHL Dallas Stars; and the Austin Spurs, NBA G-League basketball team affiliate San Antonio Spurs.  The Stars and Spurs play at H-E-B Center at Cedar Park, a City-owned multipurpose venue that holds up to 8,700 guests and hosts more than 130 events per year.
