Frisco Parks and Trails

The City of Frisco manages 49 parks that span about 1370 acres, plus more than 740 acres of undeveloped land that can be used for future projects. The nearly 50 parks are generally open from sun up to sun down, offering a great way to stay fit, get exercise, engage in sports and play with the kids.

There are two types of parks here: neighborhood and community.

  • Neighborhood parks: These are smaller than the community parks and open 30 minutes before sunrise, closing 30 minutes after sunset.
  • Community parks: These are larger than neighborhood parks and are typically open 30 minutes before sunrise until midnight (unless the Parks & Recreation Director receives a written request to remain open longer).
