Recreation & LeisureRoyse City & Fate Have Something For Everyone!
Royse City Parks and Recreation
Royse City strives in providing safe and healthy play spaces for all ages and plays an important role in the quality of life for our citizens.
Becknell Park, named in honor of Don Becknell, former Mayor of Royse City, is currently underway. The land was acquired during the construction of N. Houston Street. The park is a neighborhood park of roughly two acres. The first phase of this park will include a playground, which should be complete by November 2015. Eventually, a small walking trail and pavilion will be added.
Briarstone Park is a neighborhood park located inside the Briarstone Estates subdivision. The park contains a playground structure.
City Lake Park
City Lake Park is the City’s premier park. At approximately 13 acres, it contains a new playground (constructed in 2014), a four acre catch-and-release lake, gazebo, half mile walking/jogging trail, and lots of open space. This is the site of community programs hosted by the Parks and Recreation Department, such as, movies and kids fishing tournament. The gazebo can be reserved for private parties/events.
Zaner Robison Historical Museum at Royse City
Fox Fields is located at Annhlee Street and Jones Street. It contains 5 youth soccer fields.
The City contracts with Royse City Soccer Association for use of the fields. When fields are not contracted (off-season), they may be reserved.
Old Mill Park
Old Mill Park is located between Old Greenville Road and the baseball fields of Walker Hawk Sports Complex. It can be accessed from Old Greenville or by using the walking/jogging trail at Walker Hawk Sports Complex. There is a catch and release pond, small shade structure, benches, and a walking/jogging trail that connects to the trail at Walker Hawk Sports Complex.
Old Jail Park
Old Jail Park is located in downtown Royse City at the water tower. It contains a calaboose (freestanding one room jail) that was built sometime between 1911 and 1921. Great piece of history! The calaboose is south of the water tower – facing the railroad tracks, not Main Street.
