Recreation and Sports

waterWhatever one’s life or lifestyle, Denton is the place to live it to the fullest. Residents are never far from their favorite activity. Water sports enthusiasts will find plenty to do; fishing, boating, skiing or camping in 31 lakes within 100 miles, with Lake Lewisville, one of Texas’ largest, only 5 minutes away, Lake Ray Roberts only 20 minutes away, and huge Lake Texoma approximately one hour away. Or, if one prefers to be close to refreshments, there is plenty of water in the public swimming pool and the large water park.

Our excellent city parks offer picnic areas, playgrounds, basketball courts, athletic fields, tennis courts, horseshoe pits, pavilions and community centers. The recreational centers offer year round activities ranging from preschool, tumbling for tots, racquet sports, painting, sculpture and baton twirling, to basic horsemanship, dog obedience, yoga, dancing, etc. Denton also has golf courses, driving ranges, racquetball, baseball, football, soccer, bowling, skating, and, of course, there are rodeos, from junior to adult, with such events as the North Texas State Fair and Denton Junior Stampede Rodeo.

Whatever one’s recreational desires, almost anything can be found in Denton – and a great climate to do it in!

And, if it can’t be found in Denton, the metroplex is very near.
