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 retail furniture development in the nation. Upon completion in 2015, Grandscape and Nebraska Furniture Mart are expected to create 2,000 jobs and attract between 8-10 million visitors a year. Already open is one of the region’s premier new attractions, TopGolf-The Colony.
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!
The Colony encourages all residents to participate in Phase 2 of the city's Drought Contingency Plan. Additionally, residents in the Austin Ranch area are under Stage 3 of Plano's Drought Contingency Plan.
