The city of Wylie is fortunate to find itself in a position poised for economic and real estate development growth, further meeting the demands of its residents now and into the future. The parks and recreation system is expanding with the opening of Founders Park and improvements to Community Park, both located in Wylie. Both Founders and Community parks host a music concert series each Thursday night throughout the summer. Another program positively impacted by recent expansion is the Wylie Wave summer youth program, offering daytime recreation activities for children while encouraging physical fitness, promoting good citizenship, developing character and building self-esteem. Lastly, a very comprehensive senior adult program is growing in membership and improving in quality of service.
Community pride is evident everywhere, from clean city streets to warm hellos at the local store. Consequently, Wylie residents benefit from a diverse program of annual and seasonal events. The Summer Concert Series at Olde City Park features entertainment for all walks of life. Stage shows may include comedic, magic or music acts from local artists showcasing their talent. The July Jubilee is a festive event filled with chili cook-offs, arts, crafts, games and rides. Finally, as the year comes to a close, the city of Wylie celebrates what locals call the Christmas-Tree-Lighting every December. Although it is cold, residents come out in droves to witness this majestic tradition.
Area students boast some of the highest SAT and ACT test scores in the entire state. Furthermore, state organized tests designed to measure the academic progress of elementary students are also looked upon fondly because local children seem to score above average year in and year out. When it comes to continuing education beyond high school, students have a plethora of higher learning institutions to choose from without having to travel far from home. The state of Texas and more notably, the downtown Dallas area and its surrounding communities are filled with major universities, community colleges and professional schools. This accessibility is invaluable to a young adult and is a major reason why living in this part of the state is so attractive. Not only do these colleges offer places to receive an education, but they also provide a source of entertainment.
Local universities such as Southern Methodist and the University of Texas are both within an earshot of Wylie. These two schools are major players in college athletics and provide sporting events on the same level, and in some cases, on a higher level than many professional sporting events. The schools also have very popular performing arts centers where major acts from across the world perform on a regular basis. Needless to say, the arts centers also feature many shows with local flair and smaller productions from the college students themselves.
