A typical Saturday afternoon of running errands in Westlake may have you crossing paths with a Texas Ranger, a Grammy Award winning singer, a Dallas Cowboy, a well-known radio personality or the CEO of a national corporation.
One of only four Texas cities to be crowned a Gold Level Scenic City, Westlake was recognized as the nation’s most affluent community by Forbes magazine.
The city is an oasis of natural beauty balancing open spaces with sophisticated housing developments, trails and highly regarded schools such as the award-winning Westlake Academy, a public charter school with three programs of the rigorous International Baccalaureate curriculum. Westlake Academy has been ranked as a top school by US News & World Report, Newsweek, and the Washington Post. Westlake residents also enjoy outstanding public schools in three independent school districts, Northwest Independent School District, Keller Independent School District and Carroll Independent School District.
Westlake is also known as a prime golf destination. The town features some of the region’s most desired golf-course communities including Club Vaquero with its Tom Fazio-design course.
