First laid out as a town named Nolanville, the current name of Belton was given in 1851 after a Texas governor. When the dam at the north of the city was built, forming Belton Lake, the neighboring town of Sparta was swallowed up by the rising water. These days, Belton is home to just over 18,000 people and is the County Seat of Bell County. It's just down the road from Killeen and the sprawling military facility that is Fort Hood.

Belton Lake, Leon River and Nolan Creek! Behind Miller Spring Park is the reservoir known as Belton Lake, a big recreation area that offers camping, hiking, boating, fishing, swimming and more. Water spilling through the dam forms Leon River, which flows down along the east side of Belton. Another smaller dam forms Temple City Lake, a small lake right in town. Nolan Creek is to the west and winds through several parks and the downtown area, providing a nice strip of green space through the city.
Great local recreation and entertainment! Summer Fun Waterpark is a favorite for locals. It's not as big as some, but the smaller size provides a more personal experience. It's next door to Heritage Park, which is filled with ball fields and picnic areas. For a different kind of relaxation, take in the pampering at the Woodhouse Day Spa at Nolan Creek. For delectable barbecue, stop in at Miller's Smokehouse. Discover the history of the region at the Bell County Museum on Main St. and grab a cup at nearby Arusha's Coffee and Tea.
Housing options! Near the University are several apartment complexes, like Montrose Place, offering attractive rental prices. There are more behind the Oak Village Shopping Center too. The neighborhood to the west of Yettie Polk Park is an established area of mostly single-family homes. Just across the river, downtown Belton's commercial district is peppered with nice shops among the government buildings and businesses. To the south, along I-35, you will find some newly built homes and a couple of manufactured home parks.
