Pflugerville unofficially depicts itself as being located between a Rock and a Weird Place since it is sandwiched between Round Rock and Austin (officially, it is “Where Quality Meets Life”). With a population of over 50,000, Pflugerville is an extremely active suburb located just 14 miles north-east of Austin.

One of Central Texas and Austin’s biggest draws in recent years has been its abundance of outdoor recreation options. Pflugerville is no different. In 2005, the city created Lake Pflugerville, a water reservoir made to provide clean water for residents, as well as to be a central recreation area that is used for fishing, jogging, wind surfing, canoeing, and swimming. The lake has a 3-mile walking and jogging trail, a playground, a spacious beach area, and a boat launch. On top of this, the city has more than 15 parks (which include pavilions, pools, picnic areas), 30.5 miles of trails, and over 500 acres of open space.
One of Pflugerville’s most popular parks is the Northeast Metropolitan Park: the area contains everything an outdoor sports enthusiast could hope for – soccer fields, a basketball court, baseball fields, tennis courts, and a skate park. And for those of you with an interest in slides and tidal waves, Pflugerville even has its own water and adventure park, Hawaiian Falls.
