Hot on the heels of its designation as the #38 suburb on D Magazine’s 2014 list of Best Suburbs, the home of Lake Ridge has something else to be excited about. Cedar Hill has the top high school football team in the nation in preseason rankings.

Cedar Hill is No. 1 in the MaxPreps preseason national rankings, an honor the Dallas Morning News calls “exciting and surprising.” The publication quoted Cedar Hill coach Joey McGuire, who said, “With as many guys as we have coming back, I thought we could be pretty high. But I was shocked that we’re No. 1,” he said. “It’s awesome for the community. We want to be No. 1 on Dec. 20.”

D Magazine’s ranking of Best Suburbs said of Cedar Hill: “Every year, the folks of Cedar Hill should have a massive festival. Two, maybe three days, with rides, funnel cakes, face painting, everything. The honored guest would be the Cretaceous period, and the party would be called something like the ‘Cretaceous Carnival’ or ‘Bodacious Cretaceous.’ Because during those 79 million years, glaciers scraped across southern Dallas County and dropped soil and rocks and god knows what else into a formation now known as the White Rock Escarpment, and created a little Hill Country less than 25 minutes from downtown Dallas.”

They also highlighted the city’s trails, specifically Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center’s 1.65-mile trail that “affords spectacular views of Joe Pool Lake below.” Cedar Hill State Park also warranted a worthy mention as “the fourth-most popular in the state.” A favorite spot for fishing, biking the DORBRA Trail, swimming, and picnicking by visitors and Lake Ridge residents alike, the park is just one of many that offers excellent area recreation. In all, 200 acres of community parks, plus walking trails, fishing ponds, an array of water activities on Joe Pool Lake, and the 18-hole public championship Tangle Ridge Golf Club make this area recreation central.

Landbuying and homebuying opportunities are available at Lake Ridge, DFW’s prime lake community and the pride of Cedar Hill. Here, an array of land and home offerings, together with desirable amenities and scenic surroundings including towering trees, rolling hills and sparkling blue lake views create a resort environment that is still conveniently close to both downtown Dallas and Fort Worth.
