Just 15 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth and 25 miles northwest of downtown Dallas, Keller is located in the middle of one of the fastest growing areas of the metroplex. Only eight miles west of DFW Airport and four miles east of Alliance Airport, Keller’s outstanding transportation accessibility puts the city in a prime position for growth. Businesses take advantage of Keller’s close proximity to the two airports, and residents are attracted by the small-town quality of life and excellent educational system. Statistics show the “new” Keller is decidedly upscale, and the surge in retail and commercial development has given the Keller Economic Development Board the task of identifying and attracting new business development while promoting the stability of the local community.
Keller’s Town Center is an example of upscale shopping and dining. Mixed with office, retail, municipal facilities, and residential communities, this pedestrian- friendly center is home to Keller’s new Town Hall, the Keller Pointe Recreation and Aquatic Center which includes indoor and outdoor pools and extensive fitness facilities, and the Keller Independent School District Natatorium, a 36,720-square-foot state-of-the-art swimming facility.
The quality of recreational sports in Keller takes a backseat to no one: Keller has seven parks and 13-miles of hike and bike trails along meandering creeks, in-line hockey, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and baseball fields, and the Keller Sports Park has lighted baseball fields, volleyball courts, multi-use fields, soccer goals, and a one-mile hike and bike trail. The Keller Independent School District encompasses six cities with 26 campuses, and schools are regularly ranked as National Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence, Exemplary, or Recognized.
