Quality of Life

As of January 2016, the number of people who call Burleson home surpassed 43,000. Burleson is appealing to many because of its proximity to Fort Worth and Dallas, low taxes, a family-oriented environment, an outstanding school system, plentiful affordable land, and more than 26 square miles of rolling hills, lakes and parks. Burleson is one of the fastest growing and desirable communities in the Metroplex.
 
The community is within 30 minutes of at least six hospitals, including a pediatric hospital and a trauma center. The school districts consistently bring in SAT and ACT scores that are higher than the state and national averages. Burleson also boasts branch campuses of Hill College and Texas Wesleyan University. The city is home to two dozen parks on approximately 300 acres. Burleson has its own municipal golf course, Hidden Creek Golf Course, which is renowned in the Metroplex. The city is also home to more than 30 churches of all denominations.

Burleson provides housing for everything from the CEO to a retired couple or a student just starting out on his own. You’re never at a loss for a great place to eat and shop with everything from the big-name chain retail outlets and restaurants to the small business operations that thrive on local support. All of these amenities are accomplished with a low crime rate, highly trained public safety employees, and a dedicated municipal staff that responds to the citizens’ needs.
