The Story Of Hickory Creek
Located on Lewisville Lake, the Town of Hickory Creek is a generous blend of parks and nature trails, bustling subdivisions and family farms, boat ramps and businesses. Residents enjoy the combination of a relaxed, small town atmosphere and growing business district. Just 45 minutes north of downtown Dallas, Hickory Creek is a progressive area yet maintains its picturesque surroundings.
The population of Hickory Creek has grown from 219 at our incorporation in 1963 to our 2010 census of 3,250. We are a general law town governed by a mayor and five council members. Town employees include town administrator, city secretary, public works director, chief of police, municipal court clerk and various assistants. The Lake Cities Fire Department provides fire protection.
A volunteer Parks Board has worked diligently throughout the years to develop several parks within the town. In 1998, the dream of many Hickory Creek residents came true when Tanglewood Park was equipped with playground equipment, benches and tables. Point Vista Park, another city-leased U.S. Army Corps Park, along with Sycamore Bend and Arrowhead Park, are equipped with boat ramps.
Commercial development has also exploded, which has helped Hickory Creek maintain one of the lowest property tax rates in the Lake Cities area. Hickory Creek is now home to Carmike Cinema, Wal-Mart, the new Cornelius Town Center, McDonalds, Chili’s, Starbucks, Sherwin-Williams, Palio’s Pizza Cafe, Domino’s Pizza, Sonic, Children’s Lighthouse, The Primrose School, Vista Academies, Pappa’s Homestyle Restaurant and many more. Retail growth is continuing with new development along FM 2181 and the I-35 corridor. The new Lake Lewisville Toll Bridge and DCTA “A-Train” will also bring additional growth in the next several years.
