Sunnyvale

Geographical/Demographic Information


Sunnyvale is a rural, sparsely populated, affluent town in Dallas County, located 15 miles east of downtown Dallas.

Sunnyvale shares borders to the north and west with the larger suburbs of Mesquite and Garland, where shopping, fine dining and entertainment are only minutes away. At the same time, the town is also bordered by the peaceful waters of Lake Ray Hubbard and the sprawling, rural expanse of Kaufman County, thus making Sunnyvale situated to benefit from the “best of both worlds.”

As of today, its population is approximately 5,200 with the town containing 1,713 household units.

History/Interesting Facts
Four rural hamlets, Long Creek, New Hope, Hattersville, and Tripp merged in 1953 to form Sunnyvale.

Conveniently located Lake Ray Hubbard offers 27,400 acres of water recreation for Sunnyvale residents. The town also has four parks: Jobson Park, Town Center Park, Samuell Farm North, and Robert Vineyard Park.

Sunnyvale ISD consists of three schools, an elementary school, middle school, and high school. In May 2007, voters in the town of Sunnyvale passed a $25 million bond package for a high school facility. Construction on the 110,000 square foot facility began in April 2008.

As Sunnyvale continues to grow, SISD expands as well. Sunnyvale Elementary opened its new facility in the summer of 2012 for students in grades pre-kindergarten through fourth.
