Founded in 1978, Hudson Oaks lies five miles east of Weatherford on U.S. Highway 80 and Interstate Highway 20. With its nonexistent property taxes, Hudson Oaks has truly become a “boom town” for commercial real estate, business development, and home building in the past 30 years.
Originally, the city came about when the Oakridge and Hudson Heights neighborhoods united to fulfill their visions of low taxes and a government adhering to the desires of the residents. Through retail-generated sales tax and fast-paced development, the City of Hudson Oaks has been able to realize those dreams and has become home to many long-term sources of revenue and other successful business developments such as several car dealerships, restaurants, a Walmart, a movie theater, a water park, a John Deere dealership and more recently, a new H-E-B supermarket that opened in May of 2019.
In addition to these factors, the traffic flow catalyzing a fast-growing commercial district as well as infrastructure providing high-speed internet for corporate offices and businesses involving large amounts of data processing continue to make Hudson Oaks an attractive place for potential residents. In fact, current and potential residents now have the option of Hudson Oaks’ first major multi-family development as the Creekside Apartments near Splash Kingdom Wild West,
The city is also in the process of extending Cinema Drive all the way to the north side of Fort Worth Highway as well as planning for a trail grant awarded through TxDOT that will connect Inspiration Drive up to Mary Martin Elementary School.
Today, Hudson Oaks continues to build a name for itself as a vibrant community. With its annual Boomin’ 4th celebration, Craft&Cork, and CoHoHo bringing the whole community together, there is no doubt that this city is a place where family is valued and unified growth is prioritized.
