Find a Park
Wylie is home to more than 700 acres of parkland and open space. In those parks, you’ll find over 10 miles of trails, 20 playgrounds, eight pavilions, 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
Neighborhood pavilions are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Paid reservations, can be made and are recommended, for the Community Park pavilion and Olde City Park pavilion or gazebo. View Pavilion and Gazebo FAQs, here.

The City of Wylie is proud to partner with several local youth sports leagues to make team sports available for the children of Wylie. Football, soccer, softball, and baseball leagues play during the spring, summer, fall, and winter. 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.

Celebrate Arbor Day, plant a tree. The City of Wylie Parks and Recreation Department held their annual Texas Arbor Day celebration on Nov. 5, 2021. Staff handed out Chinese Pistache and Red Oak tree 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 were free to the public, with each one tagged with planting instructions. Be sure to join the Wylie Parks and Recreation Department on Friday November 4, 2022, as we once again celebrate this day set aside to rejoice in the beauty of trees, and to recognize the way they enrich our lives, communities and landscapes.
