Welcome to Prosper
Small town living near the heart of Dallas.
A fast-growing suburb settled north of Plano, Prosper is the quintessential small town with a family-centric character, while offering access to big city amenities. Despite its small size, its school system is one of the most acclaimed in the DFW area, with outstanding athletic programs and a collegiate standard curriculum. But what lends this town its unique appeal is the passionate community at its heart, led by residents embodying a strong sense of pride reflected in their active desire for the community’s growth, participation in year-round events, and continued support of its various schools.
Prosper earned its name from the prosperous crop yields on its fertile prairie soil plantations—the major draw for early settlers. With the emergence of the light industry in the 1980s, a new surge of growth overtook the town, spawning new neighborhoods lined with homes, commercial areas, and health facilities. Easy access to the Dallas North Tollway puts Downtown Dallas a mere 40 minutes away, and Prosper is home to a charming downtown teeming with shops, restaurants, and well-maintained parks.
