Playground Review: Foxboro Park in Richardson

Visit on a sunny day for the colorful, slippery slides and separate play areas for kids of all ages

Location

2600 N. Plano Road. Find street parking on Braeburn Drive.

Best for 

A Saturday afternoon play date. The park’s bright-colored play equipment will draw your little ones in to the monkey bars, tall loopy slides and mini rock climbing structures. Littles as young as 2 can mark this park their territory for a few hours of play, as Foxboro is home to two separate play structures, for ages 2 to 5, and for 5 to 12. The play area for the younger kids has four slides to glide down and a steering wheel attached, so their imaginations can take them through Dallas-Fort Worth and beyond. Older kids will love the tall slides and oval and square-shaped poles to climb.

For your convenience

Benches are located near the two play areas. A pavilion area with tables and benches is also close by, should you and the kids want to sit down and refuel with snack time.

Safety 

The playground is located down a small hill; be careful not to slip as you and the kids make your way down to play. Beware of the park’s woodchip surface that may become uncomfortable to littles wearing open-toe shoes.
