The name "Colleyville" first applied to a small crossroads town on the main road between Fort Worth and Grapevine. Primarily known as a farming community, the region was recognized for cantaloupes, watermelons, tomatoes, and squash. Incorporated as a village in January 1956, the city began with an area of less than two square miles and a population of roughly 250.
Today, the city of Colleyville celebrates more than 40 years of incorporation with a population exceeding 19,000 and covering 12 square miles. This small community's big attributes have not gone unnoticed. Money magazine named Colleyville to its list of "100 Best Towns in America," and D Magazine ranked Colleyville #6 overall on their July 2006 list of "Best Places to Live." The choice is easy to understand. Colleyville Center, the heart of the city's cultural community, boasts an array of artistic programs; while the city's extensive trail system is a beacon for those outdoor enthusiasts that like to hike or bike. And Colleyville's impressive amateur sports parks match any found outside a major league field.
Situated in the heart of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and within minutes of DFW International Airport, Colleyville offers the best of both worlds-big city amenities and sophistication, coupled with the laid-back, friendly atmosphere of a small town. Colleyville's neighborhoods are the heartbeat of the city connecting the community and creating a comfortable place for families. Colleyville is a coveted community to hang your hat.
The city has gained notoriety as being an "exclusive" community with the median household income at $125,000 and new home construction exploding with an average price sitting at $400,000. The city of Colleyville is served by the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District.
In addition, the city's shopping options are some of the best in the booming Northeast Tarrant County area. From upscale boutiques or luxurious spas to an epicurean oasis or a familiar farmers market, Colleyville has something for everyone.
Quality of life is nothing less than stellar with countless entertainment options, cultural organizations, sports and recreation programs, and other exciting attractions.
