Frisco is for families! Whether you’re a long-time resident of Frisco or visiting our fair city for the first time, you’ll find plenty of fun and engaging things to do for families with elementary-aged kids. It's no wonder CNN chose Frisco, Texas as one of their top 20 favorite mid-sized cities in the United States.
Here’s a list of options to start making fun family memories in Frisco.
Frisco is called Sports City USA for a good reason. Frisco is home to several sports teams, including the Frisco RoughRiders, the Double-A affiliate team of the Texas Rangers. Be sure to catch a RoughRiders game from the lazy river at Riders Field, one of the most beautiful stadiums in baseball. There are post-game fireworks after each Friday and Sunday night home game, and kids get to run the bases after Saturday night home games!
Major League Soccer is heating up, and FC Dallas is in the middle of the action! Take the kids to chant for the home team as you cheer on our local favorites, including USMNT star Jesús Ferreira. FC Dallas games are a high-energy good time, full of passion and pyrotechnics, that kids and adults alike will love.
Get your bowl—and arcade and laser tag and axe throwing—on at Strikz Entertainment! Newly renovated, Strikz is a one-stop-shop for family fun. Whether you prefer a traditional bowling experience or want to bowl under the blacklight in the Rose Room, Strikz is fun for everyone. And, with a full menu and bar, you’ll want to go hungry.
Cards in a Box
New at The Star, Cards in a Box is a collector’s dream. From basketball and baseball to football and even Pokémon, Cards in a Box is the place to start or grow your collection. Kids will love opening their fresh card packs and trading or studying them at the community tables at Cards in a Box.
Frisco Skate Park (Northeast Community Park)
Grab your helmets and head to the Frisco Skate Park at Northeast Community Park! Skateboards, scooters, and bikes of all skill levels are welcome on the half pipe. While you’re there, take a walk around the community pond and play on the playground. This is a great spot for siblings of mixed ages.
A city run by kids, with its own currency and culture exists within Frisco at KidZania.
