“Relaxing place”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Great any time of year for relaxing, walking or just meeting up with friends. Great walking trails and a fun place for the kids to feed the ducks. Just another one of McKinney's beautiful spots to rest.

“Lots to do”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Great place for fishing, horse shoe, sand volleyball, playgrounds, picnic tables, hiking, paddle boats and even has a snack shop. It has a huge Frisbee golf course with some beautiful scenery. It's always buzzing with people.

“Beautiful park”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Towne Lake is an extremely relaxing park. It is a nice size and is very well maintained. It has a lot of picnic areas, a volleyball court, and stands set up. There's boats you can ride in the lake. There are always geese, swans, and turtles and things in the lake. It is very nice and relaxing. I'm happy it is so well maintained, because it is right across from a huge high school and off from I-75, so it must be fairly difficult to maintain.

Our family loves this park.

“Relaxing and enjoyable from pavilion reservations to event”
Reviewed September 18, 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.

“Nice lake and picnic area just off I-75”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

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.
