Just moved here 6 months ago from Whittier, California. It is such a beautiful place. I wanted something safe and fun for my family, and this was the best decision I could make. It is very safe, clean, and family friendly. I would recommend this to any of my family and friends. When I was thinking of moving to Cedar Park, I looked at these reviews here, so I hope this helps you on your search of where to live. God Bless!

Cedar Park is a beautiful area to live for young professionals and their families. Great community, public parks, places to eat, employment opportunities, and school facilities! Austin can be a congested area of Texas to reside and Cedar Park is that little northern section of Austin that is a safe haven to those that reside within it. Just recently there has been an influx of new residents in the area thanks to the recent building of a new Apple building nearby, this adds to more commerce and variety of residents! Overall Cedar Park is a lovely place to live!
Cedar Park is in Williamson County, TX, one of the most corrupt counties in the State. Big businesses do not move into Cedar Park because the City Government basically doesn't know what it's doing and there is always a big run around. When I moved here, the population was 16,000, now it's around 70,000. The majority of people moving into this area are relocating from the coastal plains of Texas and bringing their problem children with them. Crime has increased greatly and well above average for a population increase of around 50,000. The traffic is busy now throughout every day and many of the drivers are horrible. The Public education system is very hit and miss and LISD still doesn't get it that not every student can graduate in the top 10%, but that's the main push.
