Cedar Park is “where families come for fun”, and here’s a round up of top tips for visitors wanting to try something different:
Travel on a steam train for a day! The historic train sets off from Cedar Park in the morning and has a few hour layover at the small Hill Country town of Burnet. In addition to scheduled days out, there are special events like murder mystery trips and days out with Thomas the Tank Engine.
- Spelunking! There are caves in Cedar Park, and the Discovery Well Cave Preserve has a wealth of information about local flora and fauna.
- Visit the site of the Cedar Park Event Center. This will be far more fun when construction finishes in 2010. For now you can see the event center in progress at 183A and New Hope Road.
- Visit Lake Travis – there are many attractions on, off and in the water at Lake Travis – formed by the dam across the Colorado River. Volente Beach has a water park that is well worth the short drive from Cedar Park.

Cedar Park TX is a fast growing city which borders on the Northwest edge of Austin. While Austin is renowned for it’s Green Building Program, it’s hard to find a truly green home in it’s neighbor.
There are several green home rating schemes which could be adopted for a Cedar Park home seller:
- ENERGY STAR program
- National Association of Homebuilders program
- Environments For Living
One reason that none of these are being heavily marketed to Cedar Park buyers might be that they aren’t as keen.
Another is that many of the homes in Cedar Park are less than 8 years old, and so the more modern building codes mean that homes are greener by default (thicker insulation, double paned windows, more efficient HVAC).
So the home buyer in Cedar Park gets a more energy efficient home as the home is statistically newer.
