The new roadways have been an integral part of Cedar Park's growth as a community – including connections from 1431 and Parmer Lane to I-35; 1431 to 183 and 183A; and SH-45, which connects 183 to I-35 and acts as a corridor for Cedar Park. Parmer Lane also extends from 620 to Highway 29 in Georgetown, and the upper deck of 183, 183A and SH-45 goes all the way to Lakeline Mall, making it easy for residents to get just about anywhere.
Capital Metro also operates an urban rail commuter rail service that extends from Leander through northwest and east Austin and into the downtown area – including a stop near Lakeline Mall in Cedar Park (visit www.capmetro.org for schedules.)
Students in Cedar Park attend either the Leander Independent School District or the Round Rock Independent School District, and both are highly acclaimed school districts for both academics and sports programs. Texas State University also has a satellite campus here – the Round Rock Higher Education Center (RRHEC), which provides students with professional development and adult continuing education and also offers the opportunity to attain associate's, bachelor's, or a master's degree from Texas State. The Texas State RRHEC brings together Austin Community College, Texas State University-San Marcos and Temple College at Taylor. In addition, Round Rock Premium Outlets, IKEA, Southwestern University, Round Rock Hospital, Scott & White and the Dell Diamond are only minutes away.
Cedar Park is also home to Twin Creeks, a 760-acre residential, country club, and golf course community complete with a water park. Twin Creeks was the first private country club in Cedar Park and includes a Fred Couples-designed signature 18-hole golf course. Located approximately three miles south of Highway 183 at the intersection of Anderson Mill Road and Cypress Creek Road.
