Aledo, the oldest city in Parker County, is located just south of Interstate 20 in the far eastern portion of the county.
Originally a water and coal refueling station on the Texas & Pacific Railroad line in 1879, the community was first called Parker Station, but the name was changed
to Aledo in 1882 to eliminate mail confusion with Parker County. The city was incorpo- rated in 1964.
Aledo has seen rapid growth over the last two decades due to its proximity to Fort Worth and because
it is home to the Aledo Independent School District, which is known for high aca- demic standards and athletic success.
Home building is boom- ing in Aledo with The
Parks of Aledo – which has now entered its second phase, Point Vista – and Brookhollow, which is in the southern part of town. A new
fire station, located across from Aledo High School, has opened and is in full use.
In 2018, Aledo was in the final phase of installing side- walks throughout the city, allowing students to walk to school and residents to walk in the downtown and com- munity center area.
The most recent project – a joint effort between the city and its citizens – is Veteran’s Plaza, located in the Aledo Commons area, inside the loop at the center of the city.
