Borger – A Community Profile

Borger’s roots run deep – all the way to “black gold.” Borger began as a boom town in 1926 and was the largest of three towns in Hutchinson County. Borger grew rapidly and remains a vibrant oil-petrochemical community. Borger is 45 miles northeast of Amarillo and serves as the hub for the Panhandle of Texas.

Borger supports a vibrant quality of life for residents and a profitable community for businesses. Civic and charitable organizations, churches, and special interest groups provide activities and support for families. City parks, bowling center, theater, youth center, sports facilities, golf courses, skate park, gyms, swimming pool and splash pad are just some of the recreations venues that keep adults and youth occupied. Lake Meredith provides fishing, hunting, birding, trail riding, boating, scuba diving, hiking, swimming, camping, and picnicking.
