Located on the western shores of two Lake Ray Hubbard peninsulas, Rowlett is one of the area’s fastest growing communities – the city has experienced a 22.7 percent growth since 2010.
Rowlett—along with Mesquite and north Garland—became one of the hotter new home markets in the 1990s because of its location just 20 minutes from downtown Dallas and north of IH-30 and it’s afford- able housing. That’s still the case today. With a city motto of On the Water and On the Move, Rowlett has been ranked as one of the Top 25 Best Places To Live by Money magazine.
Rowlett claims a large chunk of the lake’s 80-mile shoreline and leases nearly 700-acres of City of Dallas property adjoining Lake Ray Hubbard for use as a recreation/wildlife habitat area. The city also has a 130-acre multiple use park in the northeastern part of town.
