Although Frisco is expected to continue growing in the years to come, city leaders are dedicated to keeping growth manageable and ensuring that the community continues to maintain an identity all its own. Among the many benefits that residents of Frisco can enjoy are its 19 parks, which span more than 550 acres and provide a variety of activities for the entire family. Soccer fields, baseball diamonds, playground equipment, and basketball, tennis and volleyball courts are available at several parks. The Warren Sports Complex offers an eight-acre lake recently restocked with black bass and channel catfish.
Swimming is available year-round in the municipal pool located at Youth Center Park and indoors at the natatorium located on the Preston Ridge Campus in Alumni Hall. Hiking and biking trails are located in Oakbrook Park, Shawnee Trail, Preston Lakes Linear Park, Starwood Development Trail, and Warren Sports Complex. The Frisco area is also home to some of the finest golf courses in the state.
Fine Arts and Culture
The fine arts continue to take center stage in the activities of Frisco's Association for the Arts. Symphonia Frisco fully embodies the vision established by the Association for the Arts. This umbrella organization designed to create local adult orchestra, chamber groups and a youth orchestra. Each year, the association sponsors a number of events to increase the awareness of arts in Frisco. Perhaps the most successful and well-attended of these events is the Holiday Pops Concert.
The city is also home to the Frisco Community Theater, a local theatrical troupe that presents drama, comedy, children's theater, and musicals of well-known favorites and original productions. In addition, 23 museums, 56 galleries, 22 theatrical centers, four orchestral organizations, four ballet groups and two opera associations that provide more than 100 live performances nightly are all within a short drive.
For those who follow professional sports, area teams include the NFL?s Dallas Cowboys, NBA?s Dallas Mavericks, AL?s Texas Rangers, and recent NHL Stanley Cup Champions the Dallas Stars. Frisco has recently added a minor league ballpark that features a farm club of the Texas Rangers. The area is also home to the Byron Nelson Golf Classic and MasterCard Colonial golf tournaments. The Texas Motor Speedway and Lone Star Park offer thrills for racing enthusiasts.
One of the city's best-known facilities is the Superdrome, a world-class track cycling facility. Since the facility's inception in 1998, the international governing body (UCI) and the national governing body (USA Cycling) have chosen the Superdrome Sports Enterprise to host and manage their prestigious cycling competitions including the Olympic Trials in the spring of 2000. The Superdrome has hosted four U.S. National Championships. In 2003, the Superdrome played host to a World Cup Qualifier.
Frisco?s astronomical residential growth has attracted several new retail and service outlets ranging from nationally recognized stores to wonderful specialty shops. Stonebriar Centré Mall opened in 2000 with 1.6 million square feet of retail space as the largest mall in north Texas. The mall also features an NHL-size ice rink, a 24-screen AMC movie theater and a soft play area with a carousel. Frisco's Main Street features an eclectic assortment of shops offering one-of-a-kind gifts and treasures. You can take a break from shopping and enjoy a delicious meal at Main Street restaurants in historic buildings like the Abbey Texas Cafe or Randy's.
The local school district is considered one of the best in the state and is rapidly expanding to meet demand. And when it comes to higher education, the Collin County Community College technology campus for the district provides advanced technology training to more than 2,000 credit students. A number of four-year colleges and universities are also located in the area.
