This rapidly-growing suburb centers around sports. There's an athletic center for residents and several venues host professional teams in hockey, soccer, minor league baseball and D-league basketball. Sometimes called the "Dallas Bubble," the population has ballooned from about 40,000 to 120,000 since 2000. Still, 80% of residents own their homes and the community has a large Neighborhood Watch Group dedicated to improving quality of life and reducing crime. The Parks and Recreations Department hosts a 5K 'Frosty Run' and Breakfast with Santa and neighborhoods plan events like July 4th parties and Easter Egg hunts, according to Nextdoor.
