Northeast Community Park and Skate Park Open in Frisco
September 24, 2017 11:10 pm
Most people agree that public parks enhance the quality of life in cities, towns, and communities. They provide the outdoor space that lets Texas residents enjoy their favorite activities.
New homes in Frisco TX accommodate a wide range of lifestyles, and the city’s new Northeast Community Park and Skate Park gives residents more options for staying active.
Located on Honey Grove Drive, at the intersection of Panther Creek Parkway and Coit Road, Northeast Community Park consists of 74 acres with two pavilions and eight multi-purpose playing fields, along with the largest skate park of its kind in North Texas, and the first in Frisco. Park visitors can also enjoy a walking trail, two cricket pitches, a playground, and pond for catch and release fishing.
The 47,000 square foot skate park is the result of the joint efforts of the city council, Parks and Recreation board, and members of the local community. The city used public forums to ask residents what features should be included in the design process. This resulted in a skate park that’s designed for skaters by skaters.
Skating enthusiasts can take advantage of the park’s multi-depth bowl, half pipe, and rails, along with a concrete wave that measures 16 feet. Best of all, the skate park can be used with bikes, in-line skates, and scooters as well as skateboards.
The park is an invaluable resource for promoting active living, which supports the well-being and growth of the entire community. City planners want to establish a premier park system for Frisco, and the new park is a major step in achieving that goal. Future developments for the park include courts for basketball, volleyball and tennis, as well as a splash pad.
The cost of developing the Northeast Community Park and Skate Park has been estimated at $17.5 million. Funding was made possible by contributions from Frisco’s Parks and Recreation Board, the Frisco Community Development Corporation, and bonds that were approved by the city’s voters.
