Best Parks in the Area
This Saturday, February 8th, is National Kite Flying Day and we thought we would share the best local spots to get outdoors!
One of our favorite parks in all of the Grapevine Colleyville area is Parr Park, which is located just north of Hall Johnson and Parr Road. Parr Park has two baseball fields, a soccer field, football field, a playground for all ages, and running trails. This park has several open spaces that are great for flying kites, playing tag or enjoying a picnic. There are power lines that run along the street, so be careful if you are planning to fly a kite!
Bicentennial is the premier park in Southlake. It is located on the north side of 1709 between Shady Oaks and Whites Chapel. Bicentennial has a large playground, fishing, in-line hockey court, multi-use trails, baseball/softball fields and tennis courts. There is not as much open space as Parr Park in Grapevine, however there are several spots where you should have plenty of room to fly a kite.
Kimzey Park is a hidden gem in Colleyville located in the Ross Downs neighborhood in between Pool Road and Highway 26. Kimzey Park has a playground, volleyball court, basketball court, and a pond that is stocked with bass, catfish, and perch. It also has a large baseball field that has plenty of room to fly a kite. An added bonus is that there are no power lines nearby!
Bear Creek Park in Keller is located Southeast from the corner of 377 and 1709. This park has several volleyball courts, soccer fields, and several pavilions which make it perfect for enjoying a nice day out. Additionally, it has two playgrounds for the kids and plenty of space. Just watch out for the trees if you’re flying a kite!
Andrew Brown Park in Coppell is located off Denton Tap Road in Coppell just south of Highway 121. The park is divided into eastern and western sections. The western portion has wide-open spaces that are dedicated towards sports with baseball/softball fields, soccer fields and basketball courts. The eastern side of the park is more kid friendly and has multiple pavilions, playgrounds, and nature trails.
We hope you enjoy these local parks as much as we do! Happy National Kite Flying Day!
