Forney is located in northwest Kaufman County, approximately 21 miles east of downtown Dallas and 53 miles east of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Forney's proximity to downtown Dallas and to both the north Dallas and Las Colinas business centers is likely to make Forney residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.
