Champion Park is a unique playground for children of all ages to have fun and make new discoveries. The park, which opened in the fall of 2007, features a covered children’s play area with stone casts of dinosaur bones, a large blue whale that spurts water, and specially designed boulders for climbing. It has a large picnic pavilion with built-in grills, a fishing area, and a scenic bridge across the Brushy Creek. In 2010 we added a new unique park feature for climbing that goes along with the theme of the park which is an exploration of the area’s archeological past. This is a large play area with life size replicas of the bones of a dinosaur. Funds for the parks came from bonds approved by Williamson County voters in 2000. Champion Park is named after the Champion family, whose cemetery is located near the park. John Champion, a former Williamson County sheriff, is buried on the site along with several relatives. The 33-acre park sits along the award winning Brushy Creek Regional Trail, approximately half way between the trailhead at Brushy Creek Road and Great Oaks Drive and the City of Cedar Park’s Brushy Creek Lake Park. A bridge across the creek connects the park to the Avery Ranch subdivision. Champion Park is open from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
