Centrally located in North Texas near the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Flower Mound is a family-oriented community that prides itself on maintaining a small-town atmosphere, while embracing and fostering a dynamic economic development environment. Specifically, Flower Mound is an incorporated town located in Denton and Tarrant counties just northwest of Dallas and northeast of Fort Worth adjacent to Grapevine Lake. It was originally named for a 12.5-acre hill approximately 50 feet in height located close to the intersection of FM 3040 and FM 2499. The formation attracted the attention of early settlers to the area, and is often simply referred to as "The Mound".
Uniquely located between two large lakes, Lake Grapevine on the southern border and Lake Lewisville just minutes to the north, Flower Mound is home to one of the largest natural hardwood forests in the U.S., the Cross Timbers Region, and offers a tremendous diversity of lifestyles in which to live, work and play.
The Town of Flower Mound operates 54 public parks and recreation facilities. Flower Mound boasts heavily wooded hills, panoramic views and an abundance of creeks and shorelines, and offers unlimited recreational and leisure activities, including sailing, water sports, fishing, hunting, camping and hiking. It is also home to two nationally-recognized golf courses, Tour 18 and Bridlewood Golf Club.
The town is mostly served by the Lewisville Independent School District. Other parts of Flower Mound are located in the Argyle Independent School District and Northwest Independent School District. The town is home to two high schools, Edward S. Marcus High School and the newer Flower Mound High School, both part of the Lewisville district.
