Villages of Woodland Springs - North Fort Worth Homes for Sale
20 Years and Still Growing
Master Planned Community - The Villages of Woodland Springs
A sprawling 1300 acre master planned community, The of Villages of Woodland Springs has grown to around 4500 single family homes since its inception way back in 2000 when the first new homes were built north of Keller-Hicks along Park Vista Blvd. The original tower entrance stands at that location. While technically in the city of Fort Worth, The Villages of Woodland Springs is often referred to as being located in Keller, even though the cities are generally divided by highway 377 / Main Street. That is likely because the Keller post office is the hub for mail in the area.
Homeowners north of Keller-Hicks from highway 377 heading west all the way to I-35 now call The Villages of Woodland Springs home. It used to be safe to say the northern edge of the neighborhood stopped at Timberland Boulevard. But as the VOWS has continued to grow, the western half of the neighborhood reaches north toward Highway 170.
The area offers easy proximity to I-35, Highway 114 and 377 Denton Highway, so VOWS neighbors enjoy easy access to employment and all the shopping and dining the area has to offer. Kids from The Villages of Woodland Springs attend either the Keller ISD or the Northwest ISD, depending upon their location in the neighborhood.

Residents of the Villages of Woodland Springs enjoy amenities including a community center, six pools, tennis and basketball courts and even picnic areas. Homeowners can take advantage of the miles of trails and bike paths, too. Several of the trails wind and weave around the 14 ponds in the neighborhood.

Soccer, sand volleyball, tennis, basketball, and roller hockey facilites are located in the neighborhood, too.
VOWS enjoys a strong owners association anchored by an on-site HOA office. The association enhances the neighborhood in a variety of ways including maintaining the amenities. Publising newsletters and arranging an almost endless list of community events is perhaps how the HOA is most visible to residents. Resident involvemengt in the many committees required to run an active association is a great way to get to know neighbors.
Neighborhood wide holiday events such as Breakfast with Santa and Fourth of July water slides just the beginning of the fun. Recently VOWS hosted a Mom and Son Social which included lunch and carzy cool science experiments. Daddy Daughter Dances, End of School Year Party's and even Goat Yoga have been found on the Villages of Woodland Springs events calendar.
