Here’s an amenity that’s hard to beat: Purchase a home in Union Park and you can enjoy your own food truck park.

The Hillwood Communities master-planned development is located off State Highway 380 and across from the new Denton ISD Braswell High School, which is set to open in August. Union Park will home an on-site elementary campus, according to a news release.

“The kids can go enjoy the food from the food truck park after school,” said Fatima Ali, a Hillwood Communities representative. “I think it’s fantastic and a true selling point for the development.”

Hillwood Communities, which opened the first phase of its 757-acre development to homebuyers this week, will offer provide space for six food trucks set up with power next to a large indoor/outdoor pavilion and event lawn.  The development will provide seating and open space in the park for people to eat. The amenities will be complete in April.

The first phase of Union Park has seven model homes featuring floor plans and designs by American Legend Homes, Drees Homes, Emerald Homes, Highland Homes and Plantation Homes.

Home prices range from the mid-$200,000s to the mid $400,000s and selling started Tuesday morning. Out of 400 first-phase homes available for purchase, 30 had been sold by Thursday afternoon.

The $700 million development will eventually have about 2,400 single-family homes and 100 acres of parks and open space.

It will also have an on-site lifestyle manager to plan special events and programs; a wooded, 35-acre park; an outdoor kitchen; a resort-style pool; a pond and trails.
