Aledo is a haven for families that enjoy wide open spaces and a small town atmosphere with a distinct Western flair. With half the population density as Fort Worth and its “Recognized” school district by the Texas Education Agency, many families have headed 18 miles west of downtown Fort Worth to Aledo, located in Parker County. Aledo delivers the country lifestyle that many people associate with Texas including a historic Main Street, where festivals and special events are held; these include Christmas Tyme in Aledo and an annual Arts and Crafts Fair, as well as summer First Friday events. For equestrians, Aledo is a crown jewel, boasting its 176 acre equestrian center and world class training facility and several premium horse boarding facilities.
While Aledo feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city, it offers easy access to large employers in neighboring Tarrant Count such as Lockheed Martin/Carswell, Alcon and BNSF Railways. All that the City of Fort Worth has to offer with its rich western and cultural heritage are 15 minutes away.
Like any true West Texas town, Aledo boasts a great high school football team. The Aledo Bearcats have built a legacy in being named Texas State Champions several times in recent history. Golfers have a goldmine of surrounding 18 hole public courses to choose from in and around Aledo including Split Rail Links and Golf Club, Lost Creek Golf Club, The Golf Club at Crown Valley, Squaw Creek Golf Club and Whitestone Golf Club.
