Cedar Park City Council, the city's Type B community development board, city staff and contractors held a ceremonial groundbreaking for Lakeline Park on Aug. 27.
The 200-acre park will be southwest of Bell Boulevard and Little Elm Trail.
Phase 1 will include a multipurpose pavilion for music and performing arts, 3 miles of trails, a great lawn, a fishing pier, pavilions, multipurpose practice fields, a cricket field, wildflower meadows, 400 parking spaces and other amenities on 64 acres. The lawn will seat about 3,000 people, and the farther grassy area can seat about 7,000 people during events.
Mayor Corbin Van Arsdale said during the ceremony that the community input from the 2015 bond task force, public meetings and public surveys led to Lakeline Park's development.
"This park is a product of what our community wants and wanted to see," Van Arsdale said.
Cedar Park City Council approved the Phase 1 construction agreement and three other Lakeline Park agreements July 22. The park's plan was approved in 2018.
The $10.3 million project is funded through general obligation bonds, Type B Community Development funds, parkland dedication funds, utility funds and Texas Parks & Wildlife Department grant funds. Lakeline Park construction was part of the 2015 voter-approved bond.
