Why Flower Mound?
Flower Mound’s strategic central location, low tax rate, excellent school system, and unsurpassed quality of life continue to garner national recognition and highlight the community as a premier business destination.
Flower Mound is centrally located within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex with quick access to the DFW International Airport and Alliance Airport. Flower Mound has nearly 1,000 acres of parkland, including more than 75 miles of hike, bike, and equestrian trails, numerous athletic fields, 57 parks, and 37 unique playgrounds.
We're centrally located between Grapevine Lake and Lake Lewisville, providing access to miles of beautiful shoreline for outdoor activities. Be sure to explore all the programs we offer through the Community Activity Center, the Senior Center, and the Flower Mound Public Library. Take your furry friends to the Hound Mound dog park, cool off at the Heritage Park splash pad, or enjoy a staycation at the newly-upgraded 243-acre Twin Coves Park on the north shore of Grapevine Lake.
Community events are a tradition in Flower Mound, with a fun-filled calendar that includes our Independence Day celebration, summer concert series, art festival, Veterans Day Relay, Dorothy's Dash 5K race, Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony, and much more. It's this great sense of community that led Money to rate Flower Mound as the fourth "Best Place to Live" in the nation for 2021-2022. As you enjoy your time in Flower Mound, know that you are greeted as a neighbor, a friend, and a family member.
