Parks Moms Love in Allen, Frisco & McKinney

I am thankful everyday that we live in an area that is plentiful in parks. My kids live for being outside. It doesn’t seem to matter the temperature; they can play forever at a park. We are often park hopping and enjoying what our wonderful cities have built for our kids.

Below you will find a list of our regular parks in rotation. These are parks moms love: many with covered seating and/or play structures, splash pads, walking paths, large and small play areas, even some with zip lines and ropes courses! The majority of the parks we explore are in McKinney, Frisco, and Allen but this is by no means a complete list. The opportunity for park exploration in Collin County is endless. We hope you enjoy these parks as much as we do!

Julie is a NOLA girl at heart who is setting down roots in Texas. She is married to her high school sweetie, Christopher. They are raising their sweet boys Harrison (Oct. 2014) & Douglas (Feb 2016) and their baby girl Colette (Dec. 2017). We cant forget their crazy GSP puppy Liuzza. They live in McKinney and spend their weekends yelling "Geaux Tigers & Who Dat" wherever they are!. Julie lives for play dates, mom dates, friends, and family. She can be seen watching her DVR'd shows (even if it takes days to get through one show), reading the same book for months, playing outside with her kids, taking nice relaxing bubble baths with a warmish cup of tea, cooking her newest pinned dinners, starting 17 different crafty projects and just enjoying what life has to offer.
