On behalf of the phenomenal citizens of the 2006 All-America City of DeSoto, I would like to thank you for visiting our website.  The City of DeSoto, located in southern Dallas County, is a vibrant municipality with a population of nearly 52,000 residents and a land area of 21 square miles. 

As a future visitor to the City of DeSoto, you are invited to experience our beautiful community where entertainment and the arts provide leisurely activities for all to enjoy.  Moreover, the City of DeSoto offers a well-manicured trail system for outdoor enthusiasts and pristine athletic fields for those who love sports.     

The City of DeSoto continues to thrive economically and has recently received a bond upgrade from AA- to AA status, issued by Fitch IBCA. We want the world to know that the City of DeSoto is always “Open for Business” and welcomes the opportunity to become home to more Fortune 500 companies such as Kohl’s Corporation, who built an e-commerce distribution center in the Eagle Industrial and Business Park.  

As always, the City of DeSoto is committed to ensuring that all of our residents, and visitors alike, have memorable moments to share with their family and friends. We strive daily to make our City a premier destination locally and nationally. I personally look forward to greeting you soon during your visit to our All-America City!
