City of Flower Mound

Flower Mound is an incorporated town[Note 1] locatedd in Denton and Tarrant counties in the U.S. state of Texas.[3] [4] Located northwestd of Dallas and northeast of Fort Worth adjacent to Grapevine Lake, the townd derives its name from a prominent 12.5-acre (5.1 ha) mound located in the centerd
of town.

After settlers used the site for religious camps during the 1840s, the area around. lower Mound was first permanently inhabited in the 1850s; however, residents did not incorporate until 1961. Although an effort to create a planned
community failed in the early 1970s, Flower Mound’s population increased substantially when Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport opened to the south in 1974. As of the 2010 United States Census, the population was 64,699,[1] reflecting a 28% increase over the 50,702 counted in the 2000
Census.[5]
Flower Mound’s municipal government, operating under a council-
manager system, has invested in a public park system highlighted by and extensive network of trails. The town’s public schools comprise part of the Lewisville Independent School District. With its moderately affluent population and proximity to the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, Flower Mound has used
smart growth system for urban planning, and has recently experienced more rapid light industrial growth to match the growing needs of the primarily residential community. In 2012, Flower Mound was ranked at #8 as one of thed
Best Dallas Suburbs according to D Magazine.[6]

The Town of Flower Mound operates 54 public parks and recreation facilities on 693 acres (280 ha) of space, nine of which (comprising 70 acres [28 ha]) are developed as of 2012.[45] In June 2008, the town held the grand opening for its
new $13.825 million community activity center, which includes meeting rooms, a daycare facility, weight lifting equipment, an outdoor pool, and a 30-by-30-yard (25 m × 22.86 m) competition indoor pool.[44] In honor of Lance Corporal Jacob Lugo, the first military serviceman from Flower Mound to die in the line of duty, the town renamed Hilltop Park to Jake’s Hilltop Park in 2008.[46] In 2016 Flower Mound completed and opened its first dog park, a 5-acre Hound Mound Dog Park, costing over $1 million.[47] In 2018 the Town of Flower Mound opened a beautiful 2000 sq. ft. splash pad as partz of an addition to Heritage
