Why move to Mustang, Oklahoma
April 13, 2018
Mustang is one of the hottest real estate markets in the OKC area. Located at the southwest gateway to the metro, Mustang is a vibrant community where a small-town quality of life is on display every day. “People like to live in Mustang because it feels like a small town, but it has great schools, wonderful shopping in both Yukon and Mustang, and easy access to Oklahoma City,” said Art Kastner of Berkshire Hathaway, Home Services, Anderson Properties. Ideal Homes has two neighborhoods in the Mustang area: Somers Pointe – located on the west side of Garth Brook, just south of Reno. Skyline Trails – located on the north side of Reno, just east of Garth Brooks. Great Schools: “Families moving to Mustang always ask about schools first,” Kastner said. Kids who live in Ideal’s Somers Pointe and new Skyline Trails neighborhoods attend Mustang Public Schools, one of Oklahoma’s top school districts, named one of the top places to work in Oklahoma. Mustang has consistently supported the district’s efforts to modernize and maintain facilities, prepare for continued future growth, and provide students with top-flight STEM and fine arts educational opportunities, including a new science academy and visual and performing arts center. Fabulous Shopping: “Mustang’s location is one of its biggest selling points – and the shopping is unmatched,” Kastner said. The corner of Garth Brooks and I-40, just over a mile north of Somers Pointe and Skyline Trails is The Destination for all kinds of great shopping in the west metro area. With more than 40 shopping and entertainment opportunities, your family can enjoy dinner and a movie, take care of your banking and health care needs, shop and work out – all in one area. Things To Do: “A big part of Mustang’s appeal lies in its warm, small-town feel. There are lots of things to do, and the people who live here really get to know each other,” Kastner concluded. The city boasts a powerhouse Parks and Recreation Department, which hosts events year-round, from Summer Concerts in the Park and Flicks & Floats at the Aquatic Center, to a LEGO Club for aspiring engineers, and Friday Night Dance Parties. Special events include the Firemen’s Freedom Fest on June 30, Western Days on Sept. 7-8, the Spooktacular Halloween Carnival on Oct. 27 and the Festival of the Trees in early December. Mustang has eight fully developed parks: www.cityofmustang.org/parksites, as well as a 20,000 square foot Recreation Center. The Mustang Aquatic Center pool features a beachfront entry for easy access, interactive water-play structures, water slide, and a 25' lap lane. Non-swimmers enjoy a large deck area for relaxing with a variety of concession choices.
