Willow Park

Willow Park is located on Interstate 20 about twenty miles west of Fort Worth in eastern Parker County.

Farmers first settled in the area in the 1850s. About 1940, with the completion of U.S. Highway 80, crews constructed a scenic roadside park that included willow trees and a pond. After the completion of Lake Weatherford in 1957, more residents moved to the area development of El Chico Ranch Estates.

In 1963 residents voted to incorporate under the name of Willow Park. The community had a golf course, fire department, and several churches. Additional subdivisions, small businesses, larger chains, and professional offices, as well as a police department, were put into place during the 1980s.
