Cedar Park is a major suburb of Austin with parts located in Travis and Williamson County; the majority being in Williamson County. Cedar Park is one of the fastest growing areas around Austin. Close to Austin and the lake, communities in Cedar Park have some unbelievable views of the Hill Country and sunsets that will amaze. Shopping in this area is great with a major mall, numerous big name furniture stores and too many shops to attempt to even list my favorites

History Recap for Cedar Park
Cedar Park did not start out being named as such, originally named Running Brushy after a local spring and then Bruggerhoff. Bruggerhoff only lasted about 5 years, it came about after the railroad came through. It was the name of a railroad official and the locals didn’t care for the way the name was pronounced or spelled. In 1887, Emmett Cluck declared the town name to be Cedar Park and it stuck!

Cedar Park Hockey
Cedar Park Center is ready to go and the Texas Stars, an American Hockey League, is scheduled to begin playing by the end of 2009. I’ve lived in Texas all my life and think it’s great we are going to have an ICE hockey team – that has got to be the cool place to be! I can’t wait to go. The concerts are a big hit as well.
