Wesley Chapel is a census-designated place (CDP) in Pasco County, Florida, United States. Wesley Chapel is considered part of the Tampa Bay Area metro. The population was 5,691 at the 2000 census. In 2003, some residents of Wesley Chapel started a movement to incorporate the community (including areas not in the official CDP). This "city," which would have been the largest and most populous in Pasco County, had much opposition from some wealthy, prominent residents, and never materialized.
