Fox Creek Park is Waukee’s newest and third largest park (18 acres). Phase 1 of construction was completed in the fall of 2016. Within the park, there are trails totaling 3/4 of a mile in length which connect Grant Ragan Elementary to the surrounding neighborhoods. Visitors will also notice two acres of prairie plantings which aim to help the Monarch butterfly population increase.
Phase II of Fox Creek Park construction will occur years sooner than expected thanks to the November 2017 passage of the Dallas County Local Option Sales & Services Tax. The plan for the phase feature the additions of a splash pad, indoor shelter, pickleball court, a basketball court, open greenspaces, play pods, parking and more. Completion of the park is tentatively set for the summer of 2019.
