With diverse neighborhoods, high quality of life, and a convenient Metroplex location, Richardson is the city that has it all. Richardson has been recognized as one of the top places to live and work by the national media, and the city is dedicated to continuous improvement and open communication with its residents.
Residents love living in Richardson because of its 900-acres of parkland and extensive trail system. You’re able to enjoy the outdoors while still maintaining everything that suburban life has to offer. From getting active to yearly arts and culture events, Richardson works hard to produce some of the area’s top-rated festivals.
Richardson's annual Wildflower! Festival held at Galatyn Park features six stages of national and regional headliners, singers and songwriters, tribute bands, and local artists over three days. In addition to the yearly festival, Wildflower is a community program that works with Richardson residents year-round. The Wildflower! Care-a-van program brings experiences to local children's hospitals and nursing homes throughout DFW, and the Richardson Recycles at Wildflower! brings the community together to recycle more than 5,500 tons of recyclable materials annually.
Most children in Richardson attend school through the Richardson school district, with a small portion attending Plano ISD. Richardson educates more than 38,000 students over 54 campuses and has a long-standing reputation for educational excellence and has been recognized at both the state and national levels. The success of the school district comes from the leadership of the Board of Trustees and the professional educators who work to give every child the best education.
You may not know it, but Richardson is also a college town, home to UT Dallas. UT Dallas has become one of the best research institutions in Texas with 133 degree programs. Students pursue a variety of studies and interests through a local setting. The university is known for attracting some of the brightest minds in math, science, and engineering, and is also considered one of the top business schools in the state.
In addition to UT Dallas, Richland College, a Dallas County Community College campus, is also located in Richardson. As part of the community for over 40 years, Richland has been a great stepping stone for adults looking to continue their education but aren’t quite ready for a four-year option.
