The Tree House will be constructed along the Taychas Trail, near two existing playgrounds. The structure will include play features  consistent with an open 'fort' concept. The open structure will be designed to encourage kids to play and interact with the natural environment. Look for construction to start 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 Lonestar Ranch subdivision. Improvements include 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 floodplain. The Army Corp of Engineers is actively establishing plant materials with completion expected by the end of 2018. 

Hike and Bike Trails

Frisco has more than 90 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, which is currently being updated (2018). Once adopted, implementation will span the next five years.
