It seems like so long ago that the planning process started. We attended all of the meeting and gave our input. The first Lakeline Park Master Plan public meeting was held on April 5, 2017, the second meeting on June 19, 2017 and the third meeting on August 27, 2017 at the Cedar Park Parks & Rec Center. Another forum was held in 2018 to get more input from residents on what they would like to see offered at the new Lakeline Park. The City of Cedar Park does an amazing job of listening to residents when planning public amenities. These planning sessions are a lot of fun. It’s so rewarding to see these projects develop and come to fruition. Similar sessions were done for the Bell District Project, which is currently underway.

At the first meeting large boards were placed around the room and residents were given dots to “vote” on amenities they would like to see in the park and sticky notes to add additional comments and suggestions. The process was a lot of fun! This is one of the many things I love about our City staff. They really take great care in delivering quality amenities and programming to residents.

The City then went back to the drawing board to enhance the plans which were presented again for feedback at the subsequent meetings. Residents have really enjoyed this planning process and the City has done an amazing job of including everyone in the process. Lakeline Park is the crowning gem for the City and something residents can be very proud of helping to create.

Lakeline Park Concept Plan 2018

Lakeline Park consists of approximately 189 acres of undeveloped land. Most of the property is in the 100-year floodplain | inundation area of the Upper Brush Creek Water Control and Improvement District Dam No. 6 in the Buttercup Creek Watershed.

The City’s adopted 2015 Parks and Open Space Master Plan identified the following potential uses for this park:

  • trails
  • open play fields
  • pavilions and picnic facilities
  • splash pad
  • event areas
  • undeveloped preserve areas
  • fishing area
  • water activities

The master plan may include and not be limited to the following additional elements:

  • neighborhood walkway connections
  • off-street parking
  • restroom facilities
  • native/drought tolerant landscape improvements
  • perimeter multi-use bike-pedestrian trail
  • connection across Bell Boulevard (State Highway 183) to Twin Lakes Park and the Brushy Creek Regional Trail

Following these guidelines and with additional input from Cedar Park residents, the City has created what will be the crown jewel of the City. Sign up for our newsletter and stay tuned.

The City of Cedar Park is getting ready to embark on a new Parks and Open Space Master Plan in the coming year. Stay tuned for more opportunities to participate! Also, stay tuned for a new Parks & Trails Foundation that I helped to establish!
