Pflugerville is a city in Texas that straddles both Williamson and Travis Counties. As of the 2010 census, Pflugerville had a population of just under 47,000. The city has experienced a rather up and down history in terms of growth and economic expansion. Indeed, Pflugerville was nonexistent until the end of the Civil War, at which point the population steadily increased until the Great Depression.
By the end of the 20th century, the city of Austin had experienced a substantial rise in its population, causing nearby communities like Pflugerville, Cedar Park, Round Rock and Georgetown to more than double in size by 2000. With population growth came new economic opportunities, as the NBC drama Friday Night Lights (2006-2011) was partially filmed at Pflugerville High School.
The City of Pflugerville has more than 15 parks, over 30 miles of trail, 500 acres of parks and 528 acres of open land all within city limits. Many parks offer pavilions, gazebos, playgrounds, pools and picnic areas. Pfluger Park runs along Gilleland Creek and is the site of the city’s annual Deutschen Pfest, held the third weekend of every May. Pfluger Park is also used for festivals and musical events.
Lake Pflugerville is a 180-acre reservoir that provides Pflugerville residents with drinking water. The lake is open for fishing, swimming, recreational exercise, canoes, kayaks and wind surfing. Lake Pflugerville Park also boasts a walking/jogging trail, playground, boat launch, pavilion and beach area.
