PARKS Corinth Park System

The City of Corinth Parks Division is the steward of 184 acres of public parkland in Corinth. The Division also maintains over 11 playgrounds in parks throughout the city. Safety and accessibility, as always, are the primary concern in the design of all parks. For comments or suggestions about any park, please contact the Parks Division at 940-498-3200.

Parks Service Request

If you should ever encounter an unusual maintenance condition or hazard in the parks, please contact the Parks Division at 940-498-3200 to report the issue. We will attepmt to correct the problem as quickly as possible.

The Future of your Parks, Trails, and Facilities

Future park and recreation facility needs of the city are being met today through planning and design for anticipated needs as well as updating current facilities. One example is the Trails Grant awarded to the Recreation Division by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. The grant allowed the city to add an additional seven miles of soft trail to our existing trails system. The additional trail brought our trail system total to 12.74 miles allowing citizens to enjoy its use by walking, jogging, biking, and horseback riding. Additionally, the City Council has approved many improvements that you will soon see being done throughout the Corinth Community Park. Some of the improvements include a new 140 space parking lot at the soccer fields, field lighting for a soccer field, lightning prediction and warning system throughout the park, shade structures over bleachers at softball and soccer, batting cages, additional teeball field, and new restroom and storage shed at baseball.
