DOUBLE OAK, TEXAS. Double Oak is on Farm Road 407 ten miles south of Denton in southern Denton County. The area had a school district as early as 1884, but Double Oak was not incorporated until the 1970s, when suburban sprawl from Dallas-Fort Worth arrived. Double Oak reported a population of 836 in 1980. Ten years later the residential community's population had nearly doubled, to 1,664. The population grew to 2,179 in 2000.
