Filled with businesses, restaurants, shops, residences, culture, and government, Frisco Square is a focal point for life in one of America’s fastest growing communities.
Early in Frisco’s rapid-growth phase, the city had the foresight to develop a town square that can serve as a gathering place, home to city government, and host to a myriad of events, businesses, and facilities that make Frisco an example of what a modern mid-sized city with small-town charm looks like.
Whether it’s one of the big events, a casual date night, taking part in city politics, learning Frisco history, or just playing on the lawn, Frisco Square is where the action is!
