The Colony is fortunate to have a large amount of acreage available for park use as well as some very scenic areas accessible by our local parks. There are several neighborhood and pocket parks that allow residents easy access to playgrounds, picnic facilities and open play areas. We also have athletic facilities, such as Five Star Athletic Complex, Turner Soccer Complex and the Little League Complex that are built for more competitive functions. Stewart Creek Park on Lewisville Lake provides great access to the water as well as a wonderful venue for events like Liberty by the Lake, Family Fright Night or your own family reunion, birthday party or family picnic. Hidden Cove Park, also on Lewisville Lake, is great for camping adventures and boating activities. Eastvale Park is operated by Blue Sky Sports Center and is one of the premier soccer facilities in the area. Blue Sky Sports Center, Hawaiian Falls Water Park, The Tribute/Wynnwood Peninsula and Hidden Cove Park also represent public-private partnerships where the City provides the land while a private enterprise develops and operates the facility to provide services and amenities to residents without adding to the tax burden.
Improvement of the Quality of Life
Providing parks and recreation facilities is a great way to improve our quality of life and the City takes that goal very seriously. The Community Development Corporation and the City are continuously looking for opportunities to develop new amenities and enhance existing facilities/services.
So, get out of the house and get in to your parks!
