Frisco Seeking Citizen Input Regarding the Future of Frisco Parks

The Town of Frisco is hosting four park-side meetings in May to gather feedback from community members about the challenges, opportunities and possible improvements in Frisco’s parks. This is part of the Frisco Parks Master Plan process and will result in a master plan for four of Frisco’s parks: Meadow Creek, Pioneer Park, Walter Byron Park and Old Town Hall/Old Community Center Park. These plans will guide future investment and improvements, and Frisco needs feedback from citizens to ensure that these plans reflect the desires of the community.

Park-Side Meetings

Parks public meetings will be held at individual parks from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm on four Wednesdays, staring on May 8th. These meetings will be at each of the impacted parks in order to focus participants’ attention on the specific conditions of each park.

  • May 8, 2019, Pioneer Park at 5th Avenue & Galena Street
  • May 15, 2019, Walter Byron Park at 306 Creekside Drive
  • May 22, 2019, Meadow Creek Park at 828 Meadow Drive (behind Walmart)
  • May 29, 2019, Old Town Hall & Community Center at 110 S. 3rd Avenue

Background

In the 2019 budget, Town Council approved funds for park improvements in alignment with their goal to promote vibrant recreational opportunities in Frisco. As part of the community outreach process for the Community Plan update, a special public meeting was held on November 7, 2018. This meeting was focused on defining the character, opportunities and challenges at each of Frisco’s community parks. Outcomes from the meeting included a prioritization for improvements at four parks including: Walter Byron, Meadow Creek, Pioneer Park, and Old Town Hall and Community Center Parks. In order to thoughtfully plan for upgrades and improvements, staff is conducting a master planning process for each of these parks, and Frisco has contracted with Norris Design to help facilitate the planning process.

The Frisco Adventure Park & Peninsula/Nordic Center, Frisco Marina Park and Frisco Trails have their own master plans developed through community outreach so they are not included in this process. These projects involved a level of complexity and acreage, which required a more individualized process.
