The town received its name for the twelve-acre flower mound or hill in the area, now a protected site. The namesake Flower Mound sits today at the intersection of FM 3040 and FM2499, two of the biggest streets in the city. In the spring, dozens of species of flowers bloom on the mound. This is only augmented by dozens of city parks and recreation facilities. The city has dozens of miles of natural surface trails, though the few equestrian trails it has are centered on the edge of Lake Grapevine. Flower Mound, Texas is now home to around 70,000 people.
Flower Mound grew because of the people moving out from the denser, older suburbs. They created a decidedly suburban community that defends its community from densification. The city planners are trying to maintain the small-town atmosphere that led so many here. They have encouraged commercial development along I-35 West and the Lakeside Business District on the north side of Lake Grapevine. Lewisville’s controlled development and light industrial growth combined with excellent schools, proximity to major employers, and safe community led to Flower Mound being ranked the 8th best Dallas suburb in the 2012 list of top Dallas suburbs by D Magazine.
