Can I go to the park? Yes, Wylie's parks are still open normal operating hours. But SHOULD you go to the park? Playgrounds and park surfaces are nearly impossible to fully sanitize, and germs can last on surfaces for days. The only way to stay completely safe and healthy is to stay home. If you do visit the park, it's absolutely essential to practice good social distancing and only play with people from your own household. No shared balls or equipment, and no play dates. Please note, all park restrooms are closed. Our parks remain open, but amenities may need to be closed if health practices are not followed. We're all in this together; let's keep Wylie strong and healthy!
- RESERVATIONS - The City of Wylie has signed a Declaration of Local Disaster, which is preventing any organized play at any City of Wylie Park or Facility until further notice. Due to this we will not be accepting any pavilion, gazebo, or field reservations and all park restrooms will remain closed until the Declaration of Local Disaster has been lifted by the City of Wylie.
- FRIENDSHIP PARK - Effective Monday, February 10, 2020, Friendship Park pavilion and playground will be shut down for maintenance to the pavilion and construction of a new playground. We estimate this playground to remain closed for this purpose throughout the entire month of March.
- FOUNDERS PARK, COMMUNITY PARK, and OLDE CITY PARK - restrooms and drinking fountains are closed and winterized the first week of December through Feb. 28 (dates subject to change during threats of freezing weather.) Portable toilet(s) are placed on site during their closing period.

Wylie is home to more than 700 acres of parkland and open space. In those parks, you’ll find over 10 miles of trails, 15 playgrounds, and eight pavilions available for reservation, soccer fields, baseball fields, football fields, a nine-hole disc golf course, a cricket pitch, and much more. Over the next few years, the Parks and Recreation Department plans to continue implementation of the 2012 Trails Master Plan, which will increase the miles of trail in Wylie to better connect you with your community.
Find a Pavilion
Pavilions are available on a first-come, first-served basis and by reservation. Locate the right pavilion for your next outdoor gathering.
Find an Athletic Complex
Athletic Complexes are available for baseball, softball, and soccer league games and practice.
The City of Wylie is proud to partner with several local youth sports leagues to make team sports available for the children of Wylie. Soccer, softball, and baseball leagues play every spring and summer, and football is available in the fall. Soccer, football, and softball games are played at Founders Park, and baseball games are played at Community Park.
Our Parks and Recreation Master Plan was adopted by the City Council in 2010. It serves as a guide for appropriate park uses and for the location of parks within the city, and amenities within parks. The plan serves as a long-range vision (10-20 year timeframe) for future development, programming, and recreation opportunities. Issues typically addressed in parks master plans include planned park elements, natural and cultural resource management, and general design concerns. The plan is conceptual in nature and not intended to address detailed issues related to engineered site design or park operations. The plan is just one of many steps in the process that leads to the development of public parks.
Vendor Application Form
Special events, meetings and gatherings (other than typical parties or picnics) will require submission of a Vendor Application prior to reservation approval. Please call the Parks administration at 972-516-6340 if you have any questions pertaining to the vendor form. After the form is completed, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Celebrate Arbor Day, plant a tree. The City of Wylie Parks and Recreation Department will hold our annual Texas Arbor Day celebration Nov. 1, 2019. Last year, we partnered with the Texas Trees Foundation to hand out seedlings of live oak and American elm trees. This year we will be handing out Mexican live oak and American elm seedlings in the breezeway between the Wylie Recreation Center and the Smith Public Library, at the Municipal Complex located at 300 Country Club Road Building 200-300. These seedlings are free to the public, and each one is tagged with planting instructions. Join the Wylie Parks and Recreation Department as we celebrate this day set aside to rejoice in the beauty of trees, and to recognize the way they enrich our lives, communities and landscapes.
