Union Park in Little Elm Offers a Unique Slice of Texas Paradise


Hillwood’s latest development, Union Park, is a 1,100-acre master-planned community situated along the U.S. Highway 380 corridor in the peaceful Dallas/Fort Worth suburb of Little Elm.

This slice of Texas paradise is a hub for those seeking community, convenience, and an unparalleled quality of life. Surrounded by lush greenery, open greenbelts, and natural ponds, the entire neighborhood is built for residents to savor the show-stopping landscape with fellow Texans.

Here, homeowners can select from 10 different single-family home styles that cater to their specific style and budget. Designed with active adults in mind, homes range from 1,400 to 2,500 square feet. Buyers also have access to their own exclusive outdoor pool, pickleball courts, bocce ball courts, tennis courts, and a sport court.
