About the area
Cedar Park TX is a city in Travis and Williamson counties in Texas. The city is a major suburb of Austin TX, the center of which is approximately 16 miles to the southeast.

The Cedar Park area was inhabited by Native American tribes including the Tonkawa, the Lipan Apache and the Comanche. In the mid-19th century it was known as Running Brushy. In 1873 George and Harriet Cluck, after having run cattle up the Chisholm Trail for years, bought 329 acres of land that included the Running Brushy spring and which formed the core of the community that would one day become Cedar Park.

Ten years later, the railroad came through. The Austin & Northwest Railroad, which connected the state capitol with the cities of Burnet and Lampasas to the north, was finished in 1882 and passed through Running Brushy and the Cluck ranch. The community was at this point renamed Bruggerhoff. In 1887, Emmett Cluck (son of George and Harriet) changed the community name to Cedar Park.

Cedar Park changed little until the 1950s and 1960s when housing subdivisions began to be built, spurred by the growth of nearby Austin. On February 24, 1973, the citizens of Cedar Park voted to incorporate. In 1978 they created the Cedar Park library.

Cedar Park is served mostly by Leander Independent School District, and is home to the Cedar Park High Timberwolves and Vista Ridge High School Rangers. Two neighborhoods, Riviera Springs and parts of Avery Ranch, feed into the Round Rock Independent School District.

The city is home to the Cypress Creek campus of Austin Community College, which was expanded in 2008. The Texas Psychological Association is also located in Cedar Park TX.
