Welcome to the official website for the City of The Colony! We have established and continue to maintain this site as a means of providing the city’s residents and visitors with a wealth of information about the City by the Lake.
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 - including SCHEELS sporting goods and Galaxy Theatres!
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!
