Public Invited to Envision Two Future City Parks

Date: January 12, 2021

The City of Frisco and Design Workshop, Inc. hosted the first of several public meetings on Jan. 11, 2021 at 6 p.m., to help shape the future of Northwest Community Park, currently serving the mountain biking community, and the nearby, undeveloped Frisco on the Green Park.

 

The city will be working with the public along with the Dallas Off-Road Bike Association (DORBA) who currently manages the Northwest Community Park trails, to help form concepts for these two park sites.

 

This public meeting will provide an overview of the existing sites and allow for discussion of the potential amenities and design of the two parks. Conceptual plans will be presented at another meeting for additional public input in the spring of 2021.


The public may also complete an online survey to weigh in on plans for these two park sites. The survey is open Jan. 11- 22, 2021. 


More about the projects:

Northwest Community Park and Frisco on the Green Park are both located north of Panther Creek Parkway along Teel Parkway near the PGA of America headquarters and golf courses (see map).

 

These sites are part of the City of Frisco Parks and Recreation Open Space Master Plan and will serve as an important link to existing trails as shown on the recently revised Hike and Bike Trail Master Plan. The city aims to include certain elements of these plans into a new vision for the parks. These elements include: 

·    active and passive play elements

·    hike/bike trails and mountain bike trails

·    a focus on preserving existing views and sightlines

·    nature and natural resource education opportunities for the public

·    public art
