The concept plan for Ridgeline Neighborhood Park was formally adopted by the Parks Department on August 30th, 2022. To begin the next phase of design, staff will work with engineering consultants to complete flood modeling and permit drawings before construction. The purpose of this project stands to provide visible and safe access to the park and install amenities that align with community needs and environmental constraints. Ridgeline Neighborhood Park is in the design and permitting phase.

Approved concept plan for Ridgeline Park shows a pedestrian sidewalk, benches and seating, nature play, fitness equipment, trails, and wetland enhancement


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 the parkland dedication associated with the development of Lakeline Mall. Ridgeline Neighborhood Park is a City of Austin property, located in Williamson County bordering Cedar Park. The concept plan was approved in the summer of 2022.

Project Description

The property is currently undeveloped and lacks a sidewalk along South Lakeline Blvd street frontage. 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, playgrounds and/or workout zones, and park signage. The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) held (2) community engagement meetings to identify preferred amenities that align with the surrounding neighborhood.

Anticipated Schedule

Please note that as in any construction project, schedules are projected as accurately as possible. All dates are subject to change due to the nature of construction and the weather.

  • Fall 2021 to February 2022: Community engagement and initial concept design (complete)
  • Summer 2022 to Spring 2024: Design Development and Permitting phase (ongoing)
  • Summer 2024: Anticipated bid solicitation, award, and contract execution (anticipated)
  • Winter 2024: Anticipated construction

Community Engagement

PARD reached out to Austin community members and stakeholder groups within a 0.5 to 1-mile radius of the park. Initial mail flyers were distributed to adjacent Austin neighbors, and additional outreach was made through social media. The project webpage will be updated at milestones with progress information and photos.
