The City of Forney's park system includes 242 acres of parkland and four different types of parks. The existing park system includes mini-parks, neighborhood parks, community parks and undeveloped parkland. The majority of the City's parkland (84%) is provided at one site, Forney Community Park. There are two other sites of substantial size, Mulberry Park (33-acre site) and McCurry Parkland (30-acre site). Additional parks are distributed around the City, of which four sites are small mini-parks with limited recreation amenities. 

In addition to the park acreage noted above, other providers are helping meet local park and recreation needs. The City maintains 9.9 acres of school sports fields as per the interlocal joint use agreement with the Forney Independent School District. This includes fields for youth baseball, softball, soccer, and youth football. Today, the City provides an existing level of service of 13.34 developed acres per 1,000 residents.

We would encourage those who would like more information about the Parks and Recreation system to read the 2014 Parks, Recreation & Open Space Master Plan Update
