Meet Hollyhock’s awesome next-door neighbor: 300 acres of parkland and trails
Just three miles from the Dallas North Tollway, Hollyhock has a great Frisco location that combines town and country.
The "town" part offers close proximity to Frisco's "5 Billion Mile" and other awesome places to eat, work and play.
The "country" half includes Hollyhock's woodsy next-door neighbor, the 300-acre Northwest Community Park, part of a total 36 parks and 60 miles of trails in Frisco.
Still awaiting development by Frisco, Northwest Community Park is already home to two of the most popular bike trails in the Metroplex: the Frisco Mountain Bike Trail and the BMX Pumptrack & Dirt Jump Park.
Opened in 2012, the Frisco Mountain Bike Trail offers 8.1 miles of biking, with five distinct loops and 650 feet of climbing.
Recently named "Best Trail to Pop a Wheelie" by Frisco Style Magazine, this trail was built by volunteers of the Dallas Off Road Bicycle Association, the Shawnee Trail Cycling Club and the Frisco Cycling Club, in partnership with the City of Frisco.
Opened in 2015, the park's second attraction is the BMX Pumptrack & Dirt Jump Park. Designed for riders of all ages and skill levels, this one-acre park has a loop of dirt-covered mounds and berms designed for riders of BMX and mountain bikes. It’s one of only three pumptracks in the Metroplex.
More amenities will be added in the future, as the Frisco Parks & Recreation Department plans to begin the master-planning process for Northwest Community Park in 2017.
Meanwhile, adventurous Hollyhock residents of all ages will soon be able to use the community's 5.5-mile trail system to reach the two bike trails in this natural jewel. These trails are part of 20 acres of recreational amenities in Hollyhock, including its first major amenity center, which opens this fall.
