Seagoville, Texas is a small city in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex known for its environmentally-friendly attitude. Originally called Seago after founder T. K. Seago, the city was incorporated in 1926. Sixteen years prior to that, the U.S. Post Office added “ville” to the name in order to avoid any confusion with the city of Sego. Today, the city has a population of about 15,000 people who strive to maintain a “green” way of life. The city encourages all residents to live by the four R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rebuy. They do this by lowering the amount of energy, water, and products they use. They also use those products over and over, until they can’t be used anymore. Manufacturers in the city try to make new products and packaging by recycling used materials, while consumers buy as many recycled products as possible.
For the purpose of conservation, residents are encouraged to compost their yard trimmings and food in an attempt to keep the landfills to a minimum. There’s also an online “Freecycle” community that shares unwanted items rather than throw them away. The city also offers a free service that lets residents decline any paper catalogs and unsolicited mail they no longer wish to receive.
When you live in Seagoville, life is all about the outdoors. Residents have easy access to many nature preserves and outside activities. The city is home to the Dallas County Post Oak Preserve, a nearly three-mile stretch of natural trails containing some of the last Post Oak Savannah trees that once inhabited the area. Other preserves include the John Bunker Sands Wetland Center, the 500-acre Dallas ISD Environmental Education Center, and the Dallas County Palmetto Alligator Slough. The Slough contains a system of boardwalks and observation decks, a large selection of migratory birds, and what’s left of an Upper Cretaceous swamp from millions of years ago that features a species of palm trees that aren’t typically found in the area. In addition to the nature preserves, Seagoville is home to many beautiful parks, with large playgrounds, scenic walking trails, a splash pad, fishing ponds, and sports facilities.
Throughout the year, the city sponsors and holds many community events. Some of the family favorites include the Downtown Street Dance in September and Seagofest in October. In May, residents enjoy the Kid Fish Tournament and Mayfest, while the July 4th Celebration is a popular summer event.
A vast majority of students in Seagoville are served by the Dallas Independent School District, the 2nd largest public school district in the state. Dallas ISD offers its students several Talented & Gifted Programs, as well as a number of Magnet Schools and is home to two of the Top 10 high schools in the country. Small portions of the city are served by Mesquite ISD and Crandall ISD. For post-graduates, the city is within 20 minutes of Eastfield College in Mesquite and Cedar Valley College in Lancaster.
