Why Frisco Texas is a Great Place to Live


Looking to make the move to Frisco, TX? You probably have a lot of questions. After all, you’ll be putting down roots here, whether you’re coming for work or relocating your family. You’ll need a reputable mover to get you here, which is where we come in. That’s your first step. Here are some top reasons why Frisco is a great place to live.

It’s Got Parks: Lots of ‘Em!

The City of Frisco boasts 49 parks spanning a whopping 1370 acres, in addition to more than 740 acres of undeveloped land slated for future projects. All parks are open from sun up to sun down, so you won’t have any trouble staying fit, getting exercise, engaging in sports and playing with the kids.

You’ll find two park types here:

  • Neighborhood parks: Smaller than the community parks, these open 30 minutes before sunrise and close 30 minutes after sunset.
  • Community parks: Larger than neighborhood parks, these open 30 minutes before sunrise and stay open until midnight.

Here’s a quick look at just a few of them.

  • Beaver Bend Park: This has a 1.2 mile trail where you can take a light to moderate stroll. Built in 2006, it covers 26 acres.
  • Cottonwood Creek Greenbelt: Built on 77 acres, this features two miles of trails, wetlands, ponds, and platforms for fishing and viewing wildlife. It received the Texas Recreation and Park Society (TRAPS) award in 2018 for best park design in TX.
  • F. Phillips Community Park: This was built on 117 acres in 2010, featuring a disc golf course, dog park, football field, pavilion, bike trail, playground and soccer field.
  • Frisco Commons: Built on 63 acres, this park has won a variety of awards for design and family-friendly features. There’s a walking and biking trail, amphitheater, spray park, pavilion, picnic tables, and playgrounds.

It’s Growing Rapidly

Seems like Frisco TX is the place to move to. It’s undergone insane growth in the last couple of decades, starting out as a small community of 6,500 people in 1990, to a bustling city of 188,000 today.

In fact, for the first time in the past five years or more, Frisco sits at the top spot in the U.S. Census bureau’s list of fastest-growing big cities country wide, adding an average of 37 new residents daily. This has translated to a population boost of more than eight percent, according to the Dallas News.

Did you know Texas surpassed California’s share of the top 15 list? Only five TX cities could make the cut. California had four, a state that has many more residents than Texas — 11 million more in fact. Texas’ population and economic growth is owed to many factors, from high-paying corporate jobs to open land that needs development.

What has contributed to this growth? Many things:

  1. The job outlook here is top notch, with jobs estimated to grow by 15 percent over the next four years.
  2. More firms are moving where to an area where they are able to provide jobs near affordable housing. People want jobs where the cost of living is not as high as areas such as Dallas or Fort Worth.
  3. It remains an under-the-radar city that brings couples, singles, growing families, professionals and even retirees to its ranks.
  4. It was rated #1 on Money’s 2018 list of the Best Places to Live in America.
  5. It has A+ public schools. The Frisco Independent School District, with more than 70 campuses, has the highest graduation rate of all the cities and towns Money
  6. It sits just 30 miles north of Dallas.
  7. Home prices are more affordable when compared to income.
  8. Let’s not forget: the weather is beautiful, with 230 clear days on average a year.
  9. Frisco has a high walkability rating which contributes to its overall quality of life.
  10. The streets are safe, as indicated by a crime rate that is low by comparison with other nearby communities.
