With spring in full swing, it’s the perfect time to get out and enjoy life in Frisco, TX. Trophy Signature Homes has helped move so many families into new homes in our Frisco communities, so we want to help you get to know your city. This is the first in a series of occasional blogs sharing all that Frisco has to offer.
Frisco’s park system is nothing short of amazing. With more than 49 parks spanning 1,300 acres, Frisco offers plenty of opportunities for exploration. The city also has more than 744 acres of undeveloped land earmarked for future projects.
Frisco’s parks include natural areas for hiking and neighborhood parks for play. There is even a park just for dogs, Ruff Range Dog Park. Bring your pup here and have some off-leash fun. The park even has separate areas for large and small dogs.
Kids will love the inclusive and unique playground at Hope Park in Frisco Commons. It includes separate areas for big and little kids, as well as a large spray park. This park has even won several awards from Dallas Child Magazine, the National Recreation and Parks Association, and the Texas Recreation and Park Society.
If you go to parks to play sports, you’re in luck. Frisco has five large sports complexes with fields and facilities for everything from soccer, baseball, and football to disc golf, inline hockey, and sand volleyball.
In 2016, the League of American Bicyclists named Frisco a “Bike Friendly Community,” an honor given to only eight other cities in Texas. The city has dedicated bike-ways, multi-use paths, and off-road soft surface biking trails. On roadways, green “Bike Route” signs indicate bicyclists can use the full lane.
Meet other local enthusiasts by joining the Shawnee Trail Cycling Club or Dallas Off-Road Bicycle Club. Volunteers from these clubs worked with the City of Frisco to actually build Frisco’s mountain bike trail.
For more extreme riding, check out the BMX Pumptrack and Dirt Jump Park adjacent to the Frisco Mountain Bike Trail. It was designed for riders at all skill levels.
If you fish, check out Frisco Commons Park. It has a stocked fishing pond, as well as 63 acres of open space, trails, a spray park, and an inclusive playground. The city also stocks lakes at Warren Sports Complex and Northeast Community Park.
Frisco even offers a “Learn to Fish” program for kids. Offered in the spring and fall, this program is taught by Texas Parks and Wildlife certified angler instructors. When they graduate, sign the kids up for the annual Trick a Trout event at Frisco Commons in February.
