City of Denton
"The City of Denton is 94.9 square miles and strategically positioned within the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, only 37 miles northwest of Dallas and 35 miles northeast of Fort Worth. Denton is a unique community whose diversity gives it strength. Although Denton is no longer a small town with an estimated population of 115,662, there are certain qualities of small town life that our citizens hold dear. The historic downtown is the heart of Denton; the square and surrounding streets are used every day and night as a gathering place for commerce, civic events, and entertainment.
