From municipal services to leisure activities, business and play, it’s all here! We are a vibrant community that embraces economic growth, as evidenced by our landing of the largest home furnishings retail and warehouse development in the nation: Nebraska Furniture Mart of Texas. The store opened in the spring of 2015, bringing thousands of jobs to the city. As anchor of the 433-acre Grandscape development in the 121 Corridor, NFM is expected to attract between 6-8 million visitors a year. Also already open is one of the region’s premier new attractions, Topgolf-The Colony, with more lodging, dining, and entertainment destinations soon to follow.
Amid all the new economic development, The Colony is still a community that values the things that have always made this city a great place to live – neighbors helping neighbors, residents volunteering their time and energy for community activities, and quiet, tree-lined streets. The Colony features miles of trails and green space, offering all kinds of outdoor recreation which have earned The Colony designations as both a Tree City USA and a Playful City USA.
The shoreline of Lewisville Lake may be our backyard but all the advantages of the big city are nearby. We are conveniently located just 35 minutes from downtown Dallas and only 25 minutes from DFW International Airport.
The Colony continues to evolve and grow, and we invite you to come be a part of it. You’ll feel right at home!
Things To Do
With the recent heavy rains we have been having, it is a great time to check your outdoor surroundings for suitable mosquito breeding grounds. Old tires, upright containers or anything that might hold runoff water for more than a week should be removed or corrected. The Colony is actively working in conjunction with the Denton County Health Emergency Alert Response Team to educate the public on the facts about the virus and how to best protect yourself and the community from these little pests.
Check our web site home page regularly for notifications regarding spray treatment of mosquitoes or simply click the mosquito to the left to be notified (Really Simple Syndication) when updates are posted to this page. When spraying is necessary, 48 hours prior to applying this page will display the area of the city where treatments will be applied. 2015 News Releases regarding Mosquito Management and West Nile
