History of the Park
In 2015, with support from Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Williamson County Park Foundation, the city acquired 125 acres for the development of Lakewood Park located east of 183A Toll and south of Crystal Falls Parkway near the Crystal Springs, Cold Springs and Hazlewood residential subdivisions in Leander.
In 2018, the City approved a budget for Lakewood Park to include the base, tier I and tier II amenity options proposed by Halff Associates.
