Garland is an inner community located northeast of Dallas. It is considered a crucial part of the Forth Worth-Dallas Metroplex. Though some small portions are situated in Collin County, most of the city lies in Dallas County. It is the 12th most populated city within the state of Texas with a current population of around 227,000. There are two DART Light Rail Line transit stations situated in the city. One is situated within Historic Downtown Garland while the other is at Jupiter Road and Forest Land. The D/FW International Airport is situated around half an hour away.

The area was first settled in the year 1850 with the community officially being launched during the year 1874. The settlement was named after the corn mill that was constructed on the northwest bank of Duck Creek by a man named Moles. Fortunately for the settlers, the black soil was ideal for growing cotton. Cotton rapidly became their primary agricultural product and, by 1867, two cotton gins had been constructed. A post office was eventually established during 1878.

In recent years, the city of Garland has seen some notable developments; especially within the northern part of the city. During 2003 Garland City opened Hawaiian Falls Water Park, which was followed shortly by both the Firewheel Town Center and the School District's Special Events Centre in 2005. The Firewheel Town Center hosts over 100 businesses within an outdoor mall surroundings.

The city of Garland and the Trammell Crow Company completed a private/public agreement during the year 2009, to be able to develop the parking lot and old courthouse situated between 6th Street, 5th Street, as well as the North Side of Austin Street into a development which is transit oriented referred to as 5th Street Crossing. This particular development consists of over 189 residential apartment units along with 11,000 SF of flex retail.
