Thanks to all the rain Frisco has opening all three of their splash parks this summer for the first time in three years!  They are at J.R. Newman park (8211 Twin Falls Dr), Shepherds Glen park (12012 Shepherds Hill Dr) and the Bi Centennial Splash Pad at Frisco Commons (which has stayed open during the drought as it relies on well water).  The parks are open from 8am-8pm daily.   The rain has delayed improvements to the water park at the Frisco Athletic Center and it’s currently scheduled to open the first week of June with improvements that include the Preston Plunge 45-foot tall four-lane mat racer and the Fort, a multi-level interactive water playground with three slides and more than 85 spray features plus they added 300 feet to the existing Lazy River. The splash parks are free and the athletic center is membership-based but you can visit and pay a daily fee.
