The 284-acre park complex will be the largest in the city of Temple's park system, at more than twice the size of Lion's Park, the Crossroads Recreational Complex is scheduled to fully open Fall 2019.

The master plan for the park includes over 2 miles of trails within the park and connectivity to Pepper Creek Trail, with over 4 miles of existing trails. The Temple City Council approved the final phase of construction which includes: 

  • 27 Hole Disc Golf Course
  • 4 Baseball Fields
  • 4 Softball Fields
  • 7 Soccer Fields
  • 1 Multi-use Field
  • 6 Tennis Courts
  • Public Playground

The baseball, softball, and soccer fields all have concession stands and restrooms. In addition, there will be batting cages for the baseball & softball fields.

Not only will the fields have lighting, the plans also call for lighted parking lots for games that extend into the evening hours.

Planning for the Crossroads Recreational Park began in 2015, with the approval of the 2015 Parks Bond Projects. The bond also included several projects throughout Temple, nearly all of which have already wrapped up.

Located in west Temple off of Hilliard Rd and Prairie View Rd, the athletic complex will be within walking distance from North Belton Middle and Tarver Elementary Schools.

So far, development is on track, so unless the weather REALLY doesn't cooperate, it looks like everything will be on track to open this fall.

In addition to the new trails within Crossroads Park, several extensions have been added to Pepper Creek Trail to offer connectivity for residents in nearby communities - combined with the FM 2305 trail along Adams Ave, there are over 8.5 miles of hike & bike trails to explore!
