Perfect pace

An attractive balance of suburban ease and urban proximity infuse life and work in Wilmer with a uniquely satisfying rhythm. Enjoy the warm welcome of small town friendliness and quality with the amenities and excitement of the one of the nation’s most dynamic metros just minutes away. And thanks to progressive planning, Wilmer developments like the mixed-use Liberty Crossing are arriving with perfectly timed convenience.


Perfect space

In Wilmer, affordable housing means more square feet of great living per dollar, while recreation opportunities roll out Texas-sized fun and relaxation, with hundreds of beautiful outdoor acres right here in Wilmer at the Cottonwood Creek Preserve, and with thousands of acres just minutes away at a variety of attractions, including the spectacular 6,000-acre Trinity National Forest (the largest urban forest in the nation), the Trinity River, state parks, great golf courses and more.  


The perfect place for families

For families, Wilmer assures learning that helps children think well and parents feel good, at K-12 schools offering the control of local facilities and staff combined with the generous funding of a county budget well in excess of $500 million, resulting in Wilmer’s new state-of-the-art schools and services. Children grow up fast—but not too fast here in Wilmer, a suburban setting that allows children to thrive without big city pressures, and yet with access to a multitude of enriching cosmopolitan attractions and activities just minutes away.


Every week brings new opportunities to learn and enjoy, from the fine arts—world-class symphony, opera, ballet and art—to fun happenings like concerts, festivals and more; from the engagement of multiple museums—including the Perot Science Museum, the George W. Bush Presidential Library and the prestigious Dallas Museum of Art—to the excitement of performance at the Dallas Children’s Theatre. And staycations here are enviable at some of America’s favorite attractions like Six Flags and Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, plus racing excitement at SpeedZone, and pulse-racing excitement at Zero Gravity, the world’s only Thrill Ride Amusement Park. And while the thrills are plenty, the chills aren’t, in a year-round warm and welcoming climate. It’s also a nice warm feeling knowing that world-class healthcare, including a nationally leading children’s hospital, is just minutes away.


In Wilmer, life moves at just the right pace for today’s lifestyles with family-friendly combinations in schools, medical care, recreation and the arts.
