    The City of Forney is not only the fastest growing city in Kaufman County, it is also one of the top 10 fastest growing cities in the DFW area. Forney is known as the “City Without Limits” because of the vast potential of this thriving community and because an additional 20,000 Forney residents live just outside the official city limits. Forney has been able to maintain the friendly, small town feeling, while the population continues to grow. Forney ISD schools are consistently rated “Exemplary” by the State of Texas.

    Historic Downtown Forney has been undergoing a renovation, bringing new retail and restaurants to this charming area of town. Downtown Forney is the site of many annual events, including the Forney Arts Festival, the Turkey Trax 5K and Auto Show, and Christmas on Main. Also held downtown are 2nd Saturdays, which provides art for sale, crafts, live music, and a kid zone each month. A number of new businesses have opened their doors in Forney, particularly along the Highway 80 corridor. A brand new 123,000 sq. foot Kroger Marketplace recently opened. The 50 acre area will soon be the site of additional retail and restaurants. Forney’s booming economy is just one of the draws for new businesses and new residents.

    The City maintains Forney Community Park, which is the scene of two playgrounds, some of the top softball fields in the state, soccer fields, basketball courts, sand volleyball courts, horse shoe pits, tennis courts, and outstanding walking trails throughout. Also located inside the park is the 5000 seat, outdoor, Mick Spellman Amphitheater. This beautiful venue plays host to concerts and the City sponsored Movies in the Park, as well as other events.

    Why is Forney so popular? It is the excellent quality of life, the affordable housing, a diverse population that embraces cultural enrichment, and a highly regarded school district. Forney is known as a friendly, close-knit, help your neighbor community, and a place you can be proud to call home!
