Kid’s Kastle at Unity Park – Highland Village

Kid’s Kastle at Unity Park in Highland Village is one of those parks that has it all.

It is a huge open area with multiple ball fields, practice fields, track, pond, sand volleyball, multiple play equipment sets, fitness course, multiple picnic tables – some covered, restrooms and a train.

A train?

Yes, one of the fun things about Kid’s Kastle is the frequent freight train that runs along the tracks that border the park. I have been there when 50+ kids playing nearby hear the train whistle and pour out of the wooden play structure to wave at the train engineer.

But even if you miss the train there is plenty to do.

I like that there is adequate shade in several areas of the park – both within the large fenced wooden play structure and around the picnic area. My kids are often a little short attention span when it comes to play equipment so it is nice that there are multiple places to play at Kid’s Kastle.

There always seems to be families fishing and picnicking on blankets under shade trees next to the pond.

These pictures were taken in February so the full effect of summer foliage cannot be appreciated, but it really is a pretty place to spend a morning with your children.

The park was named for the Unity Tree which is located there. It is one of the largest pecan trees in Texas and is around 150 years old.

Unity Park with Kids Kastle is next to Briarhill Middle School in Highland Village, Texas.

    My name is Martha Fahlund and I am with the Community Education Department, Lewisville ISD. As part of the scheduled activities for this year’s Summer’s Cool summer camp, we are planning to take several large groups of children to play at Kids Kastle on the following days:
    June 17, 9:30 am, 30 children, 3 Adults
    June 18, 9:30 am, 60 children, 6 Adults
    July 22, 9:30 am, 60 children, 6 Adults
    July 23, 9:30 am, 60 children, 6 Adults
    We did not know who to contact about this or that it really mattered. We just wanted to make sure that a ‘heads-up’ was given and didn’t want to surprise anyone.
    I can be reached at 469-948-7973
    Thank you!
