The first phase of Lakeline Park in Cedar Park will include a multipurpose pavilion, a great lawn, practice fields, a kayak launch, a fishing pier, a playground and wildflower meadows.

Design and construction of the $7.5 million initial phase could take about two years, according to city documents. Lakeline Park is a 189-acre park that will developed on city-owned land located generally west of Bell Boulevard, north of Lakeline Boulevard and southwest of Little Elm Trail.

Cedar Park City Council voted unanimously March 14 to approve plans for the first phase of development of the park. Council Member Michael Guevara was absent from the vote.

The park will be constructed in at least two phases, said Sam Roberts, assistant city manager for the city of Cedar Park during a Feb. 28 meeting.

Council discussed three possible options for the first phase on Feb. 28, choosing between starting construction on the north, south or both ends of the park. Council members expressed support for the north development option, which highlights passive, unorganized activities, with practice fields and a great lawn. This option also includes multi-use trails and a segment of the Brushy Creek Regional Trail along with parking, restrooms and trail lighting.

Council Member Heather Jefts said Feb. 28 she is in favor of the north option because it has more options for more people.

“It is less limiting in who gets to use the park,” Jefts said. “It becomes much more open to everybody because we’ve got multi-use practice fields, the wildflower areas, the hike and bike trail around the whole lake, plus just an open great lawn along with it.”

The south phasing option focused on organized recreation, with one baseball field; two soccer fields; two pickleball and tennis courts; two sand volleyball courts; a fishing pier; multi-use trails; and a natural recreation area.

The mixed phasing option included both passive and active recreation amenities on both ends of the park. Roberts said this option was the least efficient since it would require two construction sites on each end of the park.

Council Member Stephen Thomas also spoke in favor of the north option during the Feb. 28 meeting.

“I think it’s more bang for our buck,” Thomas said.
