where is that place?

02ws666 06-15-2011 07:23 AM

you enter at this point on the map. and just trailride into the back. there are a couple nice climbing spots. a couple hills to crawl over. and you can get all the way to the lake if you take the right trails... nothing special, but i live in The Colony, so its easy for me to access and have a little fun

Well I did some digging on some gov sites and the best I could determine is that this land is Frisco city owned and zoned partly for future parks, but mostly as flood plane. Looks like they have not done much updating since 2006 though and I could not find any tax record or what would resemble and address to prove any other ownership to the land on a district appraisal website.

So where does that leave us? Clueless.

02ws666 06-25-2011 12:01 PM

I believe it is army core land. That or frisco land. Who cares no one goes out there!! Ppl are there everyweekend having bonfires. Ima be out there this afternoon sometime just to take my girl and buddy out for a spin.

The portion heading west and south of the pond belongs to City of The Colony. The rest of it is private property owned by:

GGH Kingwood Land LLC
3751 Victoria Park Ave
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Tread Lightly. Privately owned and foreign at that; that's weird.

The area that this thread is talking about is 100% Frisco, none of that land is City of Colony (where I live) even based on this map (or any I've found). I know that the army corp of eng owns just about all the land around the lake that is left in Colony City Limits, and most left in Denton County around the lake.

However, being from that area of Toronto originally, I can tell you that there are alot of developers there, so that would explain part of the private property in Frisco that is zones for residential development in the future. Keep in mind, when you look at the map I originally posted that you can tell exactly where the flood plane and park land is - aka where nobody will ever bother you. Remember, there are no roads from Frisco easily accessing this property, and the Colony Police obviously have no concern since it is not their jurisdiction.

I'll be out there tomorrow at some point! :thumbsup:

02ws666 06-26-2011 02:31 PM

I'll be out there today. Shoot me a text if anybody comes out. My name is Nick and my # is 214-683-5344
