Located on the border of both Wylie and Parker, Texas as a resident you will get to experience all that two great cities have to offer.
Wylie was recently named the #25 Best Place to Live in the U.S., and the editors noted that Wylie residents, “still like to get together for good times.” Downtown events include Pedal Car Races, held in early May; Bluegrass on Ballard, the July music festival; and Boo on Ballard, the Halloween trick-or-treat event. Wylie Arts Festival, held in early December at the First Baptist Wylie Event Center, 200 N. Ballard, is an annual event featuring arts and crafts, a Christmas parade down Ballard, and the tree lighting in Olde City Park, accompanied by Mayor Eric Hogue’s traditional reading of “The Night Before Christmas.” Shopping … dining … hometown businesses … community events … there’s something for everyone in historic downtown Wylie.
Parker is proud to offer our citizens country living at its finest. Our farming and livestock roots can be found everywhere. Even though our population has increased to over 3,500 persons, one can still find spacious lots for homes uncommon to the atmospheres of more densely populated adjoining cities. Parker retains the beauty and atmosphere found only in the country, with close-by city conveniences such as shopping malls, high-quality Plano and Allen schools, fire and police protection, city water, and environmental concerns for waste recycling.
