The 306-acre park complex is the largest in the city of Temple's park system, at almost three times the size of Lion's Park, the Crossroads Recreational Complex is conveniently located in west Temple off of Prairie View Rd - just off of Hilliard Rd between Adams Ave & Airport Rd.

The baseball, softball, and soccer fields all have concession stands and restrooms.

In addition, there are two sets of batting cages, one adjacent to the baseball fields and one by the softball fields.

Not only do the fields have lighting, there are also lighted parking lots for games that extend into the evening hours.








As a regional park, Crossroads Park will serve as host to baseball, softball and soccer tournaments and has been designed to make it easier for families to spend time together before, during & after games.

The playground features a shaded climbing structure at the center, with several smaller play areas & benches circling it


The soccer fields & mixed use field currently have signs up indicating the fields are closed, but goals are in place and the concession/restroom building is complete.

The parking lot is open and provides access to the disc golf course along Pepper Creek Trail.

Planning for the Crossroads Recreational Park began in 2015, with the approval of the 2015 Parks Bond Projects, and is nearing full completion by Summer 2020 - although the majority of the park is open and operational as of early Spring.
