As the third largest city in the Austin metropolitan area, Cedar Park is an integral part of the rapid growth and burgeoning prosperity of Central Texas and Williamson County. Cedar Park is widely known for its excellent schools and a pro-business environment. We are consistently named by multiple outlets one of the top places in the U.S. to raise a family – due to our abundance of amenities, relaxed lifestyle and our commitment to community and effective government. Just 17 miles from downtown Austin and on the edge of the Texas Hill Country, Cedar Park offers the best of both worlds: the energy of an innovative and booming metropolis, yet the best of small community life with parks, nature trails and comfortable neighborhoods. It all adds up to a great place for families and businesses to call home.
