Welcome to Willow Bend

Enjoy sophisticated living and an exclusive country club in this lush, secluded neighborhood.
In West Plano, Texas, Willow Bend is a planned community where most homes were built between 1979 and 2001. The first homes were built in Willow Bend Lakes, a secluded neighborhood surrounded by lakes and lush green spaces. New European-style townhomes are also being added. Several neighborhoods are scattered throughout with high-quality English Tudor or French country homes.
Willow Bend is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The prestigious Gleneagles Country Club and White Rock Creek run through the middle of Willow Bend. Other neighborhood amenities include the Willow Bend Lakes, the Willow Bend Polo and Hunt Club, the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve, and stocked ponds where residents can fish. Because the original grounds of the neighborhood were once polo fields, there’s a lingering equestrian theme. The initial sign and clubhouse still stand.
