The Parks and Recreation Department strives to provide the city's growing population with quality parks, open spaces, and facilities. The department is committed to having a great park system that complements the overall image and livability of the city.
Pearson Acres Park
This project revises the existing master plan design and develops an 11-acre neighborhood park located on Teel Parkway. The neighborhood park improvements include a shade structure, children's playground, multi-use court, walking trails, and new landscape.
First Street Park
The 1.6 acre First Street Park is located at the intersection of First Street and Ash Street in downtown Frisco. The 2017 Park Reinvestment Report identified First Street Park needs improvements. Reinvestment opportunities were discussed with community members in January 2018. Shared ideas under consideration for the master plan include a loop concrete trail, lighting, and a shade structure.
Monarch View Park
Monarch View Park is located near Teel Parkway and Panther Creek Drive, adjacent to Stafford Middle School. The neighborhood park improvements will include a shade structure, children's playground, multi-use court, walking trails, and new landscape.
Grand Park - Phase I
Located generally along and west of the Dallas North Tollway (DNT), east of Legacy Parkway and north of Stonebrook Parkway, this 275-acre regional park is the first of its kind in Frisco. Planning for Phase I development is underway.
The Grove at Frisco Commons (Active Adult Center)
Formerly referred to as a senior center, The Grove at Frisco Commons will be our new active adult center, a nearly 30,000 sq. ft. facility catering to residents who are 50 and older. Phase I amenities include fitness, crafting, and game rooms; a ballroom and a kitchen. Outside amenities will feature walking trails and an outdoor pavilion. Construction began in 2018.
Wetlands Restoration Project
A joint venture between the City of Frisco and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Wetlands Restoration Project is dedicated to rehabilitating the flood plains south of the Lone Star Ranch subdivision. Improvements include the planting of native grasses, plants, and trees as well as reconstruction of areas to create better water flow. This is the largest wetland restoration project the Corps of Engineers has undertaken. Once complete, this area will give residents the opportunity to enjoy the land in its natural state while cleaning up a neglected area of the floodplain.
Hike and Bike Trails
Frisco has more than 47 miles of hike and bike trails developed throughout the city. The vision of Frisco's trail system is outlined in the Hike and Bike Master Plan.
Active Trail Extension Projects:
This project develops approximately 1.4 miles of trail located within the Dominion at Panther Creek development. The trail will connect westward into the Latera subdivision, providing a connection between Panther Creek from Hillcrest and Preston Roads.
This project extends the Taychas Trail from Limestone Quarry Park south to a City of Plano's trail connection. This trail connector will link Frisco and Plano at S.H.121 at the West Rowlett Creek crossing. A grant administered through the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is helping support the project.
