Flower Mound is located in Denton and Tarrant counties, northwest of Dallas and northeast of Fort Worth adjacent to Grapevine Lake. Flower Mound’s population increased substantially when Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport opened to the south in 1974.
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. In January 2011, North Central Texas College opened a community college campus in Parker Square.
The Town of Flower Mound operates 54 public parks and recreation facilities on 693 acres of space. In June 2008, the town held the grand opening for its new $13.825 million community activity center, which includes meeting rooms, a day care facility, weight lifting equipment, an outdoor pool, and a 30-by-30-yard competition indoor pool.
The construction of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport 4 miles south of the town in 1974 ignited a period of rapid growth. The city saw an average annual increase of nearly 13 percent per year during the 1990s, making it the nation’s tenth fastest-growing community. Between 2000 and 2002, Flower Mound was the ninth fastest-growing town in the United States with a population of more than 50,000, and its population continued to increase by approximately five percent each year between 2000 and 2005. Controlled growth continues in central and western Flower Mound.
In 2006, author Bert Sperling named Flower Mound one of the “Best of the Best” in his book Best Places to Raise Your Family. He also named the city among the “best places for big houses on a budget”.
