Ridgeline Neighborhood Park is currently in the planning and design stages of development. The goal of this project is to provide visible and safe access to the park and install amenities that align with community needs and environmental constraints. The park was previously named Lakeline Neighborhood Park and had been renamed to  relate to the nearby collector street, Ridgeline Blvd.

Foot path and oak tree at South Lakeline Neighborhood Park

Background

The 10.45 acres of parkland is located at 2701 South Lakeline Blvd., Austin, Texas 78613 and was acquired by the City of Austin in 1987, as part of parkland dedication associated with the development of Lakeline Mall. Ridgeline Neighborhood Park is a City of Austin property, located in Williamson County and bordering Cedar Park. 

Project Description

The property is currently undeveloped and lacks a sidewalk along the street frontage of South Lakeline Drive. The parkland consists of forested areas, a wetland ecosystem, and two small streams that run through the park. Anticipated improvements to the park will preserve the natural environment and include a loop trail, public street sidewalk, picnic areas, playground and/or workout zones and park signage. The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) expects to hold (2) community engagement meetings to identify preferred amenities that align with the surrounding neighborhood.

Community Engagement

PARD will reach out to Austin community members and stakeholder groups within a 0.5 to 1-mile radius of the park. Initial mail flyers will be distributed to adjacent Austin neighbors, and additional outreach will be made through social media.
