Joe Pool Lake Area


The neighborhoods near Joe Pool Lake are popular with families. Some of the neighborhoods by the lake are in the Mansfield school district so you pay a bit more in taxes but you also get better rated schools. Start with the Grand Peninsula for low home prices and low taxes. Also put Westchester on your list; it sits between I20 and the lake, has low crime and great pricing for good homes.
