About Play Frisco - Parks & Recreation

Have You Played Today?

Welcome to the Frisco Parks & Recreation Department. We invite you to discover the benefits of play. Research tells us play is important for both children and adults to reduce stress, build self-confidence, improve brain function, and make connections with others, not to mention the physical benefits and joy it brings. No matter what your age or ability, we invite you to play in Frisco.

Play Frisco Turns 25!

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 your parks and trails, at our special events, the Frisco Athletic Center, the Grove at Frisco Commons (active adult center), the Frisco Discovery Center, the Frisco Heritage Center, and to explore Frisco through our Public Art Program.

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

Thank you!
