Top Frisco Parks

Top Frisco Parks

Summer is almost here! Which means it’s time to get the kids outside to enjoy the weather before it gets too hot to move- #WeLiveInTexasYall. I’ve compiled a list of some of the top parks and playgrounds in Frisco. Check a few of them out! Wear sunscreen!

Frisco Commons- Hands down the best and most popular park complex in Frisco. It’s even won some awards for design and inclusivity for Hope Park, a fabulous padded playground area that is designed to be fully inclusive of children of all abilities. Aside from this and other playgrounds, Frisco Commons includes open green areas for soccer or kite flying, pavilions and picnic tables, a stocked pond for fishing, and numerous paved trails for walking, hiking, or biking. A big highlight is the spray park (open May 15-September 30) where your kids can cool down while you watch from a shaded pavilion. And the best part? Restroom facilities are available! ‘Cause when your kids gotta go, they gotta go now.

Harold Bacchus Community Park- This park is first and foremost a sports complex, offering access to numerous baseball, softball, and soccer fields. It also boasts multiple playground areas spread across the complex, as well as a stocked pond, pavilions with picnic tables, and the all-important restroom facilities. The highlight of Harold Bacchus are the trails for walking, hiking, and biking, with connections to the creek and the two-mile-long Taychas Trail.

Shepherd’s Glen Spray Park- This hidden gem offers a cooling spray park (open May 15-September 30) without the crowds of more popular destinations. The playground area is on the small side, so the spray park is the real superstar here. There are also multiple green areas for playing soccer, flying kites, or running off some energy before nap time. A covered picnic area and paved walking trail around this park out as quaint and unusually quiet for a spray park. However, there are no restroom facilities, so come prepared!

Warren Sports Complex- A preeminent sporting complex in Frisco, Warren offers field opportunities for baseball, softball, basketball, football, soccer, sand volleyball, and tennis. Other opportunities include a playground for the littles, open green spaces, a stocked pond, paved walking and biking trails, pavilions, and restroom facilities (praise the Lord!).

Vivian Stark McCallum Park- This is our family’s personal favorite. It’s never crowded, there are two play areas for different ages and stages, a basketball court, open field to fly kites in, and a walking/biking trail encircling it all. Pack a lunch to eat under the pavilion. No restroom facilities, so come prepared.

Skate Park at Northeast Community Park- For those with older, adventurous kids, try the Frisco Skate Park. It’s North Texas’s largest skate park and is truly impressive. If you decide to “drop in,” don’t forget the helmets and pads!

What gems did I miss? Let me know in the comments. I may want to take my kids to one this summer too!
