Great news! The City of Fulshear is working towards a park and recreation system that promotes a sense of community by providing attractive and comfortable gathering places for athletic pursuits, special events and shared enjoyment of the area’s natural assets.

According to the Fulshear Parks and Pathways Master Plan, studies and stakeholder outreach have yielded a consistent message that Fulshear is in need of more recreation offerings in order to keep up with the demand of a growing community. 

Top 4 priority needs identified in the plan:

  3. Sports Facilities 
  4. Bicycle Facilities

Priority projects identified in the plan:

  • Primrose Park- New community/regional park and sports complex

  • Frances Smart Park Renovation- Formal event patio and park improvements

  • New Bessie's Creek Park - an 11.5 acre passive park with trails and fishing access along Bessie's Creek
