Frisco Northeast Community ParkCity of Frisco Frisco, Texas
Northeast Community Park is a 74-acre site located in an area of the growing City of Frisco. The master plan is complete and has been accepted by the city council. Construction of Phase 1 was completed in August 2017. Planned facilities include twelve multi-purpose lighted athletic fields, a custom skate park, large restroom/concession buildings, pavilion, trails, a pond, tennis courts, basketball courts, large playground, splash pad, volleyball, and picnic areas. Along with being a recreational resource, the pond serves as a retention/detention pond providing protection during flood events and downstream impacts and as storage capacity for the irrigation system. Irrigation water supply is independent of the city water supply, first utilizing storm water, then well water. The city water supply is only utilized as an emergency backup.
Ample parking is provided to provide plenty of space for park users without disturbing the neighborhoods. In addition, landscape buffers and berms separate the parking lots from the residential streets. The parking lots are sized to accommodate a tournament level of play.
The multi-purpose fields provide space for soccer, football, rugby, field hockey and lacrosse. Adequate space is also provided for a cricket pitch overlaid on top of two fields without obstruction by light poles. The sports lighting is designed to prevent glare and disturbance of the neighborhoods.
