     Welcome  THE CEDAR CREEK COUNTY PARK SITS ON FORTY-SIX ACRES OF BEAUTIFUL TEXAS COUNTRYSIDE!
BASTROP COUNTY'S FIRST EVER COUNTY PARK . . . . . .
Cedar Creek Park is Now a Reality!

This park, dedicated in 2008, was established with an initial conveyance of over 46 acres from the Bastrop Independent School District to Bastrop County for use as a recreational park for both the school district and the citizens of Bastrop County. It includes sports fields, trails and community gathering areas, as well as preserved natural areas along Cedar Creek.

The Cedar Creek Community is located at the intersection of FM 535 and State Highway 21 (Old San Antonio Road), while in past times the community began 4 miles west of Bastrop, and extended upstream about seven miles to the current day locale. The community is located in the head right league of Addison Litton that was granted in 1835. It grew up near the place where the Old San Antonio Road and/or the El Camino Arriba crossed Cedar Creek. In addition to the offer of year-round water from the creek, a variety of native vegetation, abundant game, and fertile soils attracted both prehistoric and historic people to this area. Some of its pre-Civil War citizens fought for Texas independence from Mexico. The first school was established in 1849 and by 1852 there was also a Post Office and a General Store. Following the Civil War, many former slaves obtained their own farms in this farming community. A number of prominent Bastrop County African Americans settled in Cedar Creek after they were freed in the 1860's.

    For several years, local civic groups and individuals have been actively involved in the planning and construction of our park. The Park Association plans to sponsor cultural, educational, and recreational activities for the enhancement of the community. Now Bastrop County has a new outlet for citizens of the County! Our first ever Bastrop County Park sits on 46 acres located at FM21 and FM535. The community really came together for this one. BISD conveyed the land and LCRA partnered with Texas Parks and Wildlife to match the land value with funds.
Our park is a beautiful new place for families and for future residents of Cedar Creek and surrounding areas, as well as the families of Bastrop to enjoy.
