The affluent city of Frisco has a sterling reputation, a vibrant community that has repeatedly been recognized one of the nation’s fastest growing cities over the past two decades. Located on 62-square miles north of Dallas in Collin County, it is home to an incredibly well-oiled city government in a tight-knit community, known as a place “that gets things done.” Frisco enjoys beautiful neighborhoods, quality schools and the distinction of being a true American sports mecca. Multiple sporting venues are based in the Frisco area including major league soccer FC Dallas that plays at Toyota Stadium, a massive sports complex that is also home to the impressive National Soccer Hall of Fame. The Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League and the National Football League’s Dallas Cowboys are also headquartered in Frisco.
There is a popular minor league team, the Frisco RoughRiders, based here and part of the Texas Rangers’ baseball farm club system. They play their home games in the spring and summer at Dr Pepper Ballpark. The Cowboys and the Stars both have large practices facilities nearby. Frisco has a national status for promoting expansion. The area continues to expand and has a current estimated population of around 200,000.
Pristine community and neighborhood parks in Frisco are well-equipped with baseball and soccer fields, basketball and volleyball courts, picnic pavilions and playgrounds. Frisco also boasts over 50 miles of hiking and biking trails to get out and enjoy nice weather in a comfortable, family-oriented environment. The popular Frisco Athletic Center sports a state-of-the-art fitness area, two full-sized gyms, two aerobic studios, childcare, recreation classrooms and indoor and outdoor aquatic areas.
Sports and recreation are huge, but not the only big draws of Frisco. The city offers plenty of fine shopping, dining and entertainment venues all within a short distance from Frisco Square, a happening area considered the new downtown showcasing 250 rental residential units, restaurants and commercial office space. Stonebriar Centre offers six major department stores, a 24-screen movie theater and national and local shops. The city also has the region's only IKEA store, one of a handful in the state. Preston Road, a major north-south thoroughfare, continues to grow and offer retail establishments and restaurants. Children also flock to Kidzania, a massive activity center at Stonebriar built for grade schoolers, along with Frisco Fire Safety Town, a miniature city with small cars, streets and buildings designed to help little ones learn how to stay safe.
The contemporary Frisco Public Library features books, movies and music as well as friendly areas to gather for regular events or programming. Most children who reside in the city attend Frisco Independent School District schools. Area high school teams play games in The Star in Frisco due to an innovative public-private partnership between the city, county and the Dallas Cowboys. Collin College, the University of North Texas and other educational institutions have campuses in Frisco.
