Parks and Recreation

The City of Mansfield’s award-winning Parks & Recreation system is considered a key factor in the city’s excellent quality of life, providing residents with more than 500 acres of parks and open space and world-class athletic and recreational facilities.

In 2009, the Mansfield Parks & Recreation Department was the recipient of the Gold Medal Award from the Texas Recreation and Parks Society for the best parks system in the state, the second time the city has received this award.

Mansfield has nine parks, four athletic complexes, a golf course, an indoor recreation facility and a water park. Among the city’s parks is Katherine Rose Memorial Park, a 24-acre park with walking trails, pavilions, a fish pond and an all-accessible playground. Rose Park is one of the city parks that connect to the Walnut Creek Linear Park, a 1.9-mile walking trail along Walnut Creek that connects to four city parks and several neighborhoods. The first phase of the park is open and will eventually run 10 miles across the City to Joe Pool Lake. The western trailhead for the linear park is Town Park, which includes the city’s first outdoor amphitheater.

The Mansfield Activities Center (MAC) houses the city’s recreation classes and the senior lifestyles program. The MAC offers programs from youth to seniors that include arts and crafts, fitness, gymnastics, karate and music.

In 2008, the city opened its first water park. Hawaiian Falls Mansfield is operated and maintained under an agreement with private water park developer Hawaiian Falls. The park, open from May to September, features a wave pool, a lazy river, three slides and several kid-friendly water activities.

Big League Dreams is an eight-field softball/baseball complex featuring replicas of major league ballparks. The complex, which hosts tournaments and several city special events, also includes an indoor soccer complex and two stadium-club restaurants.

Mansfield National Golf Club is the city’s only public golf course. The 225-acre, 18-hole course was built in 2000 and is operated by Evergreen Alliance Golf Limited.
