Cedar Park Town Center: The Future of Cedar Park
As Austin has grown over the past decade, expansion has spread north along major transportation routes. As a result, some of Texas’ more rural towns outside the city itself (and within about 30 minutes of downtown, the airport and Austin’s technology corridor), have experienced their own substantial growth.
Many homeowners looking for more affordable or newly constructed homes have focused on the city of Cedar Park, with its small-town feel. Recognized as “The Fastest Growing Suburb in America” by Forbes magazine, this little Texas town has blossomed and flourished as new retail and residential development attract even more retail and residential development. Cedar Park Town Center is an excellent example of city planning that has both promoted and managed growth.

Affordable, Attractive Homes with Impressive Community Amenities
The residential phase of Cedar Park Town Center, developed by DR Horton Homes, is a master-planned community and just the first part of the overall 400-acre town center plan. Wide roads and a towering entry monument mark the town center with much of the land now in development. DR Horton’s residential phase began in 2003, and there are still newly constructed homes available.
Slanted toward the Craftsman style, the area’s affordable homes feature a traditional look with rear-entry garages and back alleys. Framed by the area’s majestic oaks, the neighborhood presents a picture of small-town charm, while still offering all the modern conveniences of urban living.
Managed by an HOA, Cedar Park Town Center homeowners enjoy the junior Olympic-size pool with wading pool and fun water features. Hike-and-bike trails meander around scenic neighborhood lakes.
