Lake Pflugerville is a reservoir in Pflugerville, Texas in the United States. Construction of the 180-acre reservoir began in 2005 and was completed in 2006.[2] Pumps are used to flow water through a 16-mile pipeline to the reservoir from the lower Colorado River. Its main purpose is to provide water to area residents.[3]

Recreation activities also surround the reservoir. Amenities include a 3 mi (4.8 km)-long granite hike and bike trail and fishing piers. Adjacent to the reservoir is Lake Pflugerville Park, which was completed in 2010.[4][5] The park includes kayak rentals, pavilions/picnic areas, and a beach area.

Lake Pflugerville is home to several events, including KIDFish, the Pfirecracker Pfestival, and the Lake Pflugerville Triathlon.[6]
