With over 7,200 acres and only 12 miles from downtown Fort Worth, Walsh is set to become the next BIG development in north Texas.  Just how big will this master planned community be?  The developers have planned to have over 15,000 homes with a population of close to 50,000 people!

New Home Builders

There are currently 6 different home builders selected to build in Walsh but there will be more to come.  The current new home builders are Drees HomesDavid Weekley HomesToll BrothersHighland Homes, Village Homes, and the newest builder, HGC Development.  If you have never built a brand new home, it is a different experience than buying a previously owned home.  Not only have I built and lived in 3 brand new homes myself, I have actually developed new home communities in Canada and Texas!  To learn more about the new home process, read my blog on 3 things to know about buying new construction.


There will be plenty of activities to do as you will see with some of the options below.

Makerspace:  This will be a gathering place with tools and technology for anyone to dig into their creative side and make something. 

Co-Working Space:  Since so many people work from home, living here will allow people a way to get out of their pj’s and go to a convenient location, to work among like-minded people.

Fitness:  There will be no need to join a chain gym when you live in this great community. The onsite 10,000 square foot gym will contain cardio and free motion weight equipment, locker rooms, towel service, a junior Olympic pool and even a kid’s club for the busy parent that still wants to be fit!

Jr. Olympic Pool:  At the junior Olympic swimming pool, there will be lanes for swimming that can host competitive swim meets as well as recreational swimming.  If your joints give you trouble running, swimming laps will always be the number 1 exercise that doctors recommend.

Family Pools:  Family pools with beach entries, shade structures, a swim up island, water slides, a shaded baby pool for their sensitive skin, cabanas, and a sun deck will have you saying goodbye to your season passes at the local water parks.

Lagoon:  Yes, you read that right!  There will be a lagoon that will allow stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, and fishing.  What better way to spend a Saturday?

Many Different Courts:  Whether you enjoy tennis, basketball, volleyball, or bocce ball, you will have plenty to choose from.  Grab some friends and set up a recurring pickup game.

Market:  Near the entrance to The Village you will find a market that will be your daily general store, gas station, and convenient store for when you run low on milk or eggs.

Nature:  Your new community will be dedicated to nature and therefore will contain hiking and biking trails, neighborhood parks, a dog park, playgrounds, a demonstration garden, and acres of open space.


Technology is the way of the future and the developers had the fore-site to plan for this.  Their goal is to have Walsh be THE community with the fastest internet in the whole United States!  Imagine living at your house with 2 gig internet speeds as standard with the option to upgrade to 10 gig internet speeds?  Movies and gaming will never be the same.
