Have You Played Today?

Play Frisco provides fun activities for people of all ages and abilities so they can enjoy a happier, healthier life. As the Parks and Recreation department for Frisco, Texas, we help residents and visitors find well-being through play by offering quality parks, recreation, and cultural experiences.

Our Mission

Creating a sense of well-being through play.

Our Vision

Play will become essential regardless of age or ability.

The Frisco Parks & Recreation Department is one of only 171 cities nationwide to be accredited by the National Recreation & Park Association, and a proud three-time winner of the Texas Recreation and Parks Society Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Parks and Recreation Management.

We look forward to seeing you play at our parks and trails, special events, the Frisco Athletic Center, the Grove at Frisco Commons, the Frisco Discovery Center, the Frisco Heritage Center, and to explore Frisco through our Public Art Program.

Please sign up for our monthly email where we share information about all the above. We think you’ll find some gems you didn’t know about!

Thank you!
