Keller advertises itself as “successfully balancing big-city comforts with small-town charm.” The city has a population density of 2,200 people per square mile and land accompanied by its town hall, municipal service center, and recreation and aquatic center.

In the early 1850s, settlers established Keller and the town became a stop on the Texas and Pacific Railway. The settlers settled around the wooded region in Keller, because of Keller’s location to the Trinity River, water supply, and land. On November 16, 1955, Keller became incorporated.
Keller is mostly residential, featuring more than 300 acres (120 ha) of developed land for 11 park sites and 23 miles of hiking and biking trails. The Keller Independent School District has 39 campuses serving more than 34,000 students.
New residential development is gradually filling in open spaces, with neighboring towns affording no opportunity to expand its boundaries. The 1980 Census calculated Keller’s population at 4,555; today, about 42,000 residents call Keller home.
The city planned for its growth and has recently constructed a new town hall, municipal service center, and award-winning recreation and aquatic center known as The Keller Pointe. It has renovated and expanded its police facility, which houses the Regional Jail, Regional Animal Adoption Center and regional 911 dispatch center, completed a major expansion to the Keller Public Library, and constructed a new fire station (#4) for the southern portion of the city.
The Keller Independent School District serves portions of the cities of Colleyville, Fort Worth, Haltom City, Hurst, North Richland Hills, Southlake, Watauga and Westlake, as well as the entire city of Keller.
