Welcome to Southlake
A serene oasis where sophistication meets team spirit
Southlake is tucked in the heart of Dallas/Fort Worth but feels a world away from the hustle and bustle. Sophistication meets team spirit in this tight-knit community, home to the Carroll High School state championship football team, the Southlake Dragons.
Incorporated in 1956, Southlake is centered around what is now known as Southlake Town Square. The area remained rural until the completion of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in the 1970s. Because of its close proximity to the airport, Southlake experienced rapid growth throughout the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.
