“Relaxing and enjoyable from pavilion reservations to event”

Towne Lake Recreation Area
Ranked #8 of 42 things to do in McKinney
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 September 2013

This was the first time we have visited this park and we organized a family get together. McKinney was a central location so I found this park on the McKinney City website. I called and reserved a pavilion and they made it easy and gave me additional info about the park. Our pavilion was next to the horseshoe pits and the baseball field. The lake was really nice and there were lots of people walking, jogging and enjoying the paths. The park was really clean and they have a nice kids area and paddle boats you can rent. If I lived closer I would enjoy going here all the time. The pavilion had 4 metal picnic tables, an electric outlet and was a nice big size. We will definitely plan another family event here in the future.

Pretty small (no boating except for the paddle boats and paddle swans) lake in the heart of McKinney. Huge trees, and walking path - during the summer the city hosts events there too.

Love this park. It has a nice jogging/walking trail around the lake. It is wide enough to make a lap or two. It also has sand volleyball field, playground, and grill areas.
There is a small food stall where you can buy snacks.
During Summer time, they have a paddle boat swans to use for a small fee.
You'll see lots of ducks and geese in the lake area.
We found a goose egg one time!
The park is located next to Movies 14 and Senior Recreation Center in Mckinney. It is adjacent to a small meadow/trail that you can explore.
