Does someone knows of a baseball team for a 4 year old boy? in farmers branch carrolton or plano??
Farmers Branch boys in blue celebrating the City's 75th Anniversary & Independence Day yesterday at the Historical Park. #leadershipmatters #FBTX #goodtimeswithgoodpeople #branchlife
What’s the likelihood of tonight’s Independence Day celebration being rained out? 😬
Hello, the FB Park & Rec. called me early this year and said they started working on the construction bid for adding the park signs at the Alpha Rd Mini Park and the Bicentennial Park 🙂 We haven't seen the signs added in the parks so I followed up with the FB Park & Rec department but haven't heard back. Does anyone know when the park signs will be added? Those parks look like belonging to buildings nearby without the public park signs so we feel odd when we visit there...
Any word on when the basketball court is going to be open? 😞
The city staff out did themselves once again with the Halloween drive through at the Historic Park Saturday night. The Zombies were awesome and I loved the bright lights of the big truck at the end. It was a fun time. Thank you.
Hi there! To whom it concerns, my toddler son is this many ✌️ years old and obsessed (OBSESSED!) with lights! 💡 He is VERY UPSET that there is a light out at Morningstar Park. 😂 Despite reassuring him every night that someone will fix it, he grows increasingly frustrated. He talks to us about it well into the evening, and tells grandma and grandpa about it on the phone. He doesn't understand why we can't just go and change the "lite bubb". I told him I'd write our congressman and maybe the President of the United States about getting it fixed, but thought I'd start with you fine folks first. 😁😇 Please help a little boy out? It would make his day, and week, and year!!!
Are y’all doing the kids trick or treating event at the park this year? Haven’t seen anything posted for it yet. 🤞🏼
Do you know the dates for the summer gymnastics camps? We are building summer schedules and want to include some of the recreation camps!!
HEY FELLOW FB'ians: If you see things here in our beautiful city that needs handled by the city (like potholes, messed traffic lights, abandoned cars, etc) PLEASE REPORT THEM HERE: https://seeclickfix.com/farmers-branch This is a great way to communicate to our city as a community.
Can you post this week summer funshine schedule please ?
