The city's pitch: "Known for its relaxed, small-town atmosphere and thriving business district, Hickory Creek is nestled in a beautiful scenic region near one of the most popular lakes in Texas, Lewisville Lake, creating the perfect setting for our residents to engage in numerous outdoor activities. You can enjoy boating, fishing, picnicking, and playgrounds at one of the seven parks that exist along the lakefront. With retail growing along FM 2181 and the I-35 corridor, Hickory Creek is already a powerful retail center. Health care is available at the Denton Regional Medical Center, a 200-bed community hospital, and at two other medical facilities in the area. And with a nationally low crime rate and a cost of living that is 16 percent below the U.S. average, Hickory Creek offers an exceptionable quality of living for all of its residents."
