The Heart of Little Elm!
Our town of little Elm resides on several peninsulas of Lewisville Lake. This Lake is a 23,280 acre reservoir operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Little Elm’s unique water vistas and miles of shoreline provide wonderful recreational opportunities for rest, relaxation water sports and fishing.
Come enjoy pristine sand that is groomed daily, play sand volleyball on lakeside courts, take a free shuttle to top-notch restaurants and family attractions. The beach has one of the largest open swim areas in North Texas, and offers a lot of family fun. While you are the beach you can check out the Tarzan Boat which is on the lake from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Swim out and jump, dive, and swing into the lake!
Little Elm Park
This beautiful park has something for everyone. The new playground has swings, slides, and even zip lines! The park also has a pavilion, sand volleyball courts, trails and more.
The overall theme of the park connects the past and the present with a “Family Tree” look and feel, providing residents a space where they can connect with the Little Elm of their memories. Coming soon, hiking trails throughout the park will join those of the Lakefront Trail System, giving hikers, walkers, runners. And cyclists a connected series of paths they can use to customize their workouts and activities.
Cottonwood Park is located on the northeastern shoreline of beautiful Lake Lewisville, Texas. At the park you can enjoy picnicking at the picnic tables and fishing. There are hiking trails located just outside the entrance of the park, as well as the Cottonwood Sports Complex. The Cottonwood Creek Marina is located within this beautiful park as well.
Experience a mini-gateway on a beautiful day in Little Elm’s McCord Park. Amenities in the public park include over a mile of hike & bike trail, an 18-hole disc golf course, fishing dock, pedestrian bridges, picnic areas, and a playground.
The two-story recreation center spans over 25,000 square feet. The facility includes elements such as a large state of the art fitness area, full-size gym, recreations classrooms, multi purpose room, craft room, outdoor terrace, and spacious, newly renovated men and women’s locker rooms. Currently under construction, the Rec Center is expanding to include a fitness area that will grow to 7,000 square feet! We are adding new program rooms, a child room and a safe room for bad weather.
The nearly five-mile trail will string together the Town’s three major parks, terminating at the Lakefront District and providing what many runners see as an ideal training track. The trail’s scenic backdrop, accommodating terrain and ease of accessibility have captured the attention of the area’s active community. The completion of the trail is expected for early 2017.
The trail guides hikers through one of the more pristine park areas. The trail is heavily canopied along the lake, leading into an open field of cedar trees.
Johnny Broyle’s Nature Trail:
The hike and bike trail has a 10’ wide concrete path that is just under a mile, with the remainder one quarter mile of crushed granite. The concrete portion of the trail begins at Little Elm Park and ends at Main Street. The crushed granite portion of the trail continues from Main Street and ends at Lakeshore Drive.
