The Grass is Greener in Flower Mound
Are your clients looking for a community with small-town charm and big-city growth? Flower Mound is about 45 minutes northwest of downtown Dallas. The incorporated town was named one of the Best Places to Live in 2018 by money.com. With plenty of beautiful parks, outdoor activities, and planned growth in the works, it’s easy to see why.
Flower Mound was first settled in the mid-1800s as a farming and cattle-raising community, but it has been around much longer than that. In fact, there are signs of life from Native Americans as far back as 4000 BC (yes, really!). Flower Mound received its name thanks to its original inhabitants, who created a sacred space — the mound — in the southern part of the area. In the 1840s when European settlers came, they never plowed or cultivated the land around the mound, and wildflowers would grow during the wet spring season — thus the name, Flower Mound!
Despite its long history, Flower Mound wasn’t incorporated until 1961, when the estimated population was nearly 300. Population growth was slow until the 1980s when the number of residents increased from over 4,000 to nearly 16,000. Today, potential new residents flock to Flower Mound for its new residential communities, recreation, and small family-oriented atmosphere.

There’s also Trophy Club Park on the west side of Grapevine Lake, which features a disc golf course and ATV/motocross trails. On days when the whole family needs to escape from the heat, Flower Mound’s outdoor water park at the Community Activity Center has water slides, a lazy river, and much more.
During inclement weather, Flower Mound residents can head indoors for fun with the family, too.
