Park and Recreation Month

Did you know the City of Southlake has more than 1,000 acres of parkland and 100s of programs and activities for your family to participate in each year? It's true, and in July we are celebrating everything Parks and Recreation!

Park and Recreation Month


When you visit one of our parks, The Marq, or participate in one of our programs our goal is to make sure you're creating life-long memories. Everything we do is for you! When you're giving us your time, we are doing everything we can to create a world-class experience for you. This month as we celebrate all the stories that make up our parks and recreation history. From the staff who work hard to bring you the services, you've come to expect, to the amenities and programs our department offers. Check in to our Facebook page ExperienceSouthlake to see pictures and hear stories about our team.

Maybe July is just a bit too hot for you to explore the outdoors? No problem, visit Champions Club for all sorts of great activities in the AC, from the Aquatics Center to the indoor turf field, we're sure you'll find something to do.
