Kaleidoscope Park is scheduled to open later this summer, with a Grand Opening celebration, including a members-only event, slated for October 2024.

Kaleidoscope Park was made possible through a public-private partnership among Kaleidoscope Park Foundation, Communities Foundation of Texas and the City of Frisco. This partnership provides the synergies required to develop such a unique asset and destination. The Park is part of a larger development which includes The Monarch at HALL Park residences, HALL Park Hotel, The Tower at HALL Park office building and a new eatery.

The six-acre Kaleidoscope Park is located near the intersection of the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway in Frisco, Texas, and in neighboring distance to The Star, Stonebriar Centre, Legacy West, The Shops at Legacy, The Boardwalk and Granite Park, and is destined to be a landmark enjoyed by all North Texas.


Kaleidoscope Park is a dynamic, innovative arts and culture destination for North Texas currently under construction. The Park will be home to free, year-round public programming, including films, diverse musical and dance performances, and a variety of health and recreational activities. The Park will feature monumental works of public art, architecture, and gardens set among a children’s play area, dog park, performance lawn, outdoor workspaces, and shaded promenades and plazas.
