is undergoing a remarkable rebirth - a period of transformation unlike any in its long history. Yet for all the progress underway, the town has remained ever mindful of its roots as a farming community. Committed to the preservation of its natural resources, its inherent beauty and the quality of life it brings its residents, Prosper is keeping some of that progress at arm’s length by setting aside land for active and passive parks.
Four developed neighborhood parks and their respective recreational facilities are designed to give current and future generations a common ground - places where individuals and families can connect to each other, share their interests and participate in team activities that improve their physical and mental well-being. These existing parks (Main Street Park, Eagles Landing Fields, Pecan Grove Park and Town Lake Park) range in size from 4 to 21 acres for a total of more than 53 acres. Three additional neighborhood parks (Folsom Park, Hayes Park and Boyer Park) are being developed and the forthcoming 57-acre Town of Prosper Park will boast a sports complex with baseball diamonds and water features adjacent to the Prosper ISD stadium and Educational Support Center. You’ll also find a number of linear and pocket parks dotting Prosper’s residential neighborhoods.
Those seeking trails for walking, running, biking and horseback riding will find their fair share in Prosper. The town features an elaborate network of existing trails and equestrian paths, with miles of additional trails being developed. Plans call for an inter-cities trail system that will connect Prosper to all its bordering cities, including Frisco, McKinney, Celina, Little Elm and Pecan Creek. Town officials will also be proposing a program that involves community and business groups working in a true cooperative spirit with neighborhood associations to improve and maintain these open spaces.
