Located west of Fort Worth, Texas, at the eastern edge of the cross timbers region of the state, the land has great natural beauty and particularly interesting topography.
Since its inception, Walsh Ranch has been a working cattle ranch renowned for the quality of its cattle. In the 1950s it became one of the premier Charolais breeding operations in the country, and it also hosted the largest Charolais herd in North America.
In addition to the appealing natural setting, the WALSH name adds another layer of distinction. Since the 1930s, F. Howard and Mary D. Walsh have been recognized as two of Fort Worth’s most distinguished citizens, deeply involved in community philanthropy.
From their unparalleled support of Texas Christian University, to their devotion to education, the arts, children’s causes, and countless charities, the WALSH name is synonymous with excellence.
Walsh Ranch is steeped in history, not only of its operations, but in the tradition of its owners who had a vision for what it could be and how they could so demonstrably, yet humbly, support the community they love. Walsh Ranch proudly bears their legacy and their commitment to Fort Worth and Texas. It is fitting that these remarkable citizens will be remembered in perpetuity through the quality of life of all those who will live, work, play, and worship at WALSH.
The Walsh Companies have master planned, designed and will implement a quality mixed-use community on 7,275 ± acres in Tarrant and Parker Counties, Texas.

The planning and design of any community logically begins with the land and the site’s natural characteristics.
An understanding of natural systems and environmental processes is fundamental to any prospective development project.
The WALSH planning team has made an extensive evaluation of the property and mapped the natural site features such as elevation, land forms, slopes, existing tree cover, streams, floodplains and wetlands. In addition, the site’s man-made features have been located and studied including existing buildings, existing and planned roadways, pipeline easements, and utilities. Cultural factors have also been considered such as jurisdictional issues, neighboring uses, historic and archeological values, and school districts.
