The Town of Frisco Recreation and Culture Department delivers unique and exceptional experiences through sustainable, recreational, and educational opportunities, connecting the past, present and future to the community.

We are an innovative and dynamic department, taking pride in our community and helping Frisco thrive.

Frisco Adventure Park

The Frisco Adventure Park offers tubing, a beginner ski and ride hill, Nordic skiing and horse drawn sleigh rides in the winter and a free bike park, free skate park, free disc golf course and miles of trails for hiking and biking in the summer. The 4,000 square foot Frisco Adventure Park Day Lodge is also an ideal spot for special events including weddings, birthdays and graduation parties.

Peninsula Recreation Area- Comprehensive Vision & Project Implementation Plan

On October 27, 2020, the Frisco Town Council adopted the Comprehensive Vision and Project Implementation Plan. This plan will identify current uses and capacities for the different user groups and serve as a guiding document for future development and improvements.  This comprehensive plan will detail and map current and future land use allocations for operations, trails, pathways, parking, storage, recreation, and services.  It will include a specific and prioritized implementation framework for the Town to use over time.  Overall, the plan will create a long-term vision and plan that will position the Town to manage these resources and funds in such a way that the Peninsula Recreation Area (PRA) and surrounding areas can grow and be managed to the highest level of economic, social, and environmental sustainability for future generations to come.

Frisco Bay Marina

The Frisco Bay Marina is the ideal gateway onto Dillon Reservoir. The Reservoir spans 3,300 acres and boasts 25 miles of shoreline surrounded by majestic peaks. At 9,017 feet in elevation, the boating season is weather dependent, but typically runs from early June to early or mid September. Frisco Bay Marina, a full service marina, sits on the eastern end of Frisco’s charming Main Street and brings lake life to this quintessential mountain town with boat and paddle sport rentals, a sandy beach, mooring and slip rentals and waterside dining.

Marina Operational Performance Audit

In October of 2020, an audit of all Frisco Bay Marina operations was completed by F3 Marina.  F3 Marina spent two weeks interviewing staff and Marina customers. Their report with recommendations for the Frisco Bay Marina’s operations and a re-evaluation of the Marina’s fee structure were presented to the Frisco Town Council on November 10, 2020 and December 8, 2020 respectively. During the winter of 2020/21, the Frisco Bay Marina will begin implementing some of the recommendations made in the report and approved by Frisco Town Council, regarding Marina fees.

Frisco Historic Park & Museum

The Frisco Historic Park & Museum preserves and promotes the Town of Frisco’s heritage and history by presenting an excellent educational museum experience to the community and its visitors, connecting the past, present and future to the world around us with compelling programs and displays.

Frisco Nordic Center

The Frisco Nordic Center offers an excellent high altitude facility for skate skiing, classic cross-country skiing and even snowshoeing. The Center offers 27k of ski trails, 10k of snowshoe trails, rentals, skate or classic lessons and ski tuning 7 days a week from their cozy cabin located on the Peninsula Recreation Area

Frisco Athletic Events

The Frisco Recreation Department also has a diverse offering of recreational programs. The Run the Rockies Race Series goes from June through November and now boasts the award winning Frisco Triathlon. Frisco also hosts everything from the longest running Nordic event in Colorado to the newly minted BrewSki which involves costumes, skiing and New Belgium beer.

Frisco Youth Camps and Programs

Children’s “no school”, summer and athletic camps are also an important focus of the Frisco’s recreational offerings. All of these children’s programs provide experienced camp counselors, low child to counselor ratios and access to the great recreational amenities provided by the Town of Frisco.
