Downtown Weatherford

Downtown Weatherford

Weatherford is a historic town that is proud of its tradition and heritage. We are known for our community and family oriented way of life, which is why Weatherford is one of the premier places to live and visit in the North Texas.

Visitors to Weatherford will enjoy our many destinations, including a downtown shopping district that is full of antique, boutique and specialty stores, restaurants, and entertainment.
One our proudest treasures is Chandor Gardens (711 W Lee Ave), located in the historic district of Weatherford. Chandor Gardens was built in 1936 by British-born portrait artist Douglas Chandor, and captures both the ornate design of ancient Chinese architecture and the elegance of a formal English garden. The 3.5-acre estate leads its visitors on a meandering path of beauty and wonderment. Chandor Gardens is a city owned and operated facility that provides a relaxing place for visitors to visit.

We are also very proud of our deep western, ranching, and agricultural roots. Known as the Cutting Horse Capital of the World, we have over 75 cutting horse ranches and countless trainers and champion horses call Parker County home. The Parker County Sherriff's Posse has also played a key role in preserving our western heritage since its inception in 1947. The Posse's two flagship annual events are the Frontier Days Ranch Rodeo each June, and the Ranch Rodeo each September.

Our old-time Farmers’ Market, First Monday Trade Days, and a bounty of Victorian-era homes bring visitors to our city to share in our desire to maintain our heritage as we grow toward the future. Weatherford is also becoming a destination place for many visitors because of our large scale events. Our signature events include Spark in the Park and Holiday in the Park attracting over 30,000 people each year. Each summer, we celebrate our heritage as the Peach Capital of Texas with the Parker County Peach Festival in Downtown Weatherford in July.

Weatherford is a great place to visit and we encourage our visitors to explore what we have to offer! As a leading community in North Texas we know that we offer something for everyone. Come and visit us!
