Located between Lake Grapevine and Lake Lewisville, Flower Mound’s natural setting is pristine. It maintains more than 30 miles of multi-purpose trails, 680 acres of park land, 11 miles of equestrian trails, and 26 miles of unpaved hike and bike trails where residents feel far away from the major thoroughfares and three-mile proximity to DFW International Airport that make Flower Mound such an ideal bedroom community for commuters working all over the Metroplex and beyond. The city also boasts the acclaimed Tour 18 and Bridlewood Golf Courses, and three equestrian centers. Housing options in Flower Mound range from entry level homes to multi-million dollar luxury homes, and residents enjoy one of the lowest overall tax rates in the DFW Metroplex.
After experiencing unprecedented residential growth in the 1990’s, the Town of Flower Mound now actively promotes a burgeoning commercial development scene centered around the Lakeside Business District, located on the North Shore of Lake Grapevine, and the Denton Creek District, located in the growing I-35 West corridor. Its Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital received a Corporate Location Momentum Award and the city’s two new fire stations were honored with design awards. Residents also enjoy an 80,000 square foot community Activity Center.
The majority of the Flower Mound area is serviced by the Lewisville Independent School District, which prides itself on a long-standing tradition of educational excellence. With more than 38 schools receiving the “Exemplary” rating and 20 schools earning the “Recognized” rating by the Texas Education Agency, families move into LISD because of our commitment to student success. LISD also has six National Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence, which is the highest designation a school can earn by the United States Department of Education.
