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 an amazing city to live in. It is very family friendly and has many parks for all ages to enjoy. It is conveniently located right outside of Austin which provides ample opportunities to attend concerts, cool events, and really experience the downtown area (without having to endure the downtown traffic everyday). Cedar Park is very safe and a great place to start a family. The public schools in the area are very high quality with amazing teachers and staffs! I would highly recommend this area to any family who is looking for fun, safe, and an overall great place to live!
I have lived in Cedar Park since I was about four years old. Overall, it is a great pale to live and grow your family. There is plenty of safety around here and you won't ever feel unsafe. The schools are great all around but be careful they're all rival schools! I think Cedar Park could add some more places to go to or expand roads and make different commute routes because Lakeline is very packed now.
