This massive playground, built in 2006, is located in the Grayhawk community nestled next to Boals Elementary School and features an adjacent and convenient parking lot. The park, which feels more like a childhood oasis, features two large playground structures, swings, a basketball court and a soccer field, as well as a biking trail that circles the park. The playground structure consists of a rock climbing wall, several swings, and multiple slides and monkey bars all of which are well kept. Educational elements include a map of the world and musical instruments for children to enjoy. Falcons Field Park also features a lovely shaded area with picnic tables, a drinking fountain and BBQ sets, which are perfect for weekend family outings. 1911 Spirit Falls Dr., Frisco.
