Cedar Park | 78613 / 78630 / 78641
One of Austin’s largest suburbs, Cedar Park is a city in its own right – with its own professional basketball and hockey teams, over 1,000 acres of park space, and an 8,000-seat indoor arena which hosts huge musical acts and sports events each year. About a 20-minute trek from downtown Austin, the area offers more affordable home prices and a quieter, small-town feeling while still being close to the city and just minutes from major tech headquarters like Dell, Apple and Amazon.
Average List Price: $563,490
Cedar Park is bordered to the east by Highway 183A and Anderson Mill Road to the west, running south to Highway 620, and north up to Leander High School.
In 1873, cattle ranchers George and Harriet Cluck bought 329 acres of land in an area known as Running Brushy, named for the spring that fed the creek running through it. Ten years later, the Austin and Northwest Railroad was built, carrying passengers from the city to Burnet and Lampasas to the north, and ran directly though the ranch. Re-named to Cedar Park in 1887 by Emmet Cluck, son of George and Harriet, the area became a “strolling park” that visitors would take day trips to via the train.
Cedar Park remained fairly the same for some time, until the growth of Austin in the 1950s and 60s created high demand in Austin and its surrounding areas for the creation of subdivisions. Since then, Cedar Park has grown consistently, and was ranked by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2013 as the 4th fastest growing city in the country.
