Whether your imagination leads to shopping, outdoor activities, arts, history or family fun – Garland has an adventure made for you.
Texas Made Here is more than a branding slogan for Garland. It’s a state of mind that immigrant settlers brought with them in the 1800’s when they began chiseling a pioneer town out of rugged North Texas land. With respect to Garland’s strong history, generations of leaders have since progressively molded Garland into a large culturally diverse city with Texas sized opportunities. With sixty three holes of golf, 2,800 acres of parks and open spaces, two water parks, athletic fields, playgrounds, walking trails and mountain bike trails the entire family will enjoy being outdoors. Shopping, dining, events and arts all provide an ongoing sampling of the cities multi-cultural environment.
Garland is located 18 miles from downtown Dallas and is easily accessible from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport and Dallas Love Field. The city is served by three major highways and is part of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit system which provides round trip connection to Downtown Dallas via the blue rail line.
