Park & Trail Development
Cultivating Community, Inspiring Play
The Parks and Recreation Department provides the city’s growing population with quality parks, open spaces, and facilities, and is committed to providing a park system to complement the livability of the city.
Northwest Community Park and Frisco on the Green Park Project
Northwest Community Park and Frisco on the Green Park are both located north of Panther Creek Parkway along Teel Parkway near the PGA of America headquarters and golf courses. These sites are part of the City of Frisco Parks and Recreation Open Space Master Plan (PDF) and will serve as an important link to existing trails as shown on the recently revised Hike and Bike Trail Master Plan (PDF). The city aims to include certain elements of these plans into a new vision for the parks. These elements include:
- active and passive play elements
- hike/bike trails and mountain bike trails
- 55-acres of existing mountain bike trails retrofitted into a state-of-the-art bike course (Northwest Community Park)
- a focus on preserving existing views and sightlines
- nature and natural resources education
Park design should be completed in Q1 of 2023. Construction is estimated to begin in Q2 of 2023.
Jimmy and Clara Jones Park
A new urban park is on the horizon for the community around Frisco Square. A design concept was recently chosen through public input for the 2.8-acre site behind city hall south of Page Street between Jacob and Burlington streets. The design concept is multi-functional due to its location near not only apartments and homes, but businesses, the public library and city hall as well. Possible amenities include an amphitheater, meandering paths, and electrical outlets and Wi-Fi to keep the urban community connected. Proposed landscaping will be inspired by our North Texas Blackland Prairie ecoregion. Construction is estimated to be complete in July 2022.

Pearson Acres Park
The concept for this neighborhood park on the southeast corner of Teel Parkway and Wynngate Drive pays homage to the legacy of long time Frisco resident and dairy farmer, Charles Pearson and his family. A pavilion and playground sit where the Pearson home once stood, and iron gates from the dairy farm have been incorporated into the design. Public art depicting a milking cow captures the essence of the small dairy farm’s past. Pearson Acres Park is currently under construction. Construction is estimated to be complete in June 2022.
Grand Park - Phase I
Located generally along and west of the Dallas North Tollway, east of Legacy Parkway and north of Stonebrook Parkway, this 275-acre regional park will be is the first of its kind in Frisco. More updates and details coming soon!
