Playground Review: Limestone Quarry Park in Frisco

Perfect for playtime and nature learning

Location: 6300 Maltby Drive in Frisco. Find street parking along Maltby Drive or at the semicircle-shaped lot in front of the park.

Best for: An after-school, please-get-us-outdoors playtime. If your littles attend Bert & Eloise Isbell Elementary School, the park is just a few feet away. Walking toward the playground, you’ll see two areas with shaded picnic tables, great for stroller parking. From there, step down to the playground with swirly slides, faux rock walls and long walkways to stomp along. Bring paper and crayons for the rubbing station podiums by the park’s entrance, where kids can trace native leaves. Then if your kids need a change of scenery and you still have energy, check out Turnbridge Park, a quaint play place tucked inside the Turnbridge Manor subdivision nearby.

For your convenience: Shaded picnic structures with small rock-like features (they play, you chill) on each end of the playground.

Safety: You and your kiddos will take a few simple steps down to the playground. You should be OK even if the box of Band-Aids is nearly empty.
