About Us

Within the borders of Trophy Club Park (south from the main gate) is an approximate 600-acre undisturbed land designated as Trophy Club Park Conservation Area (TCPCA).  Much of the native forest still survives, and is largely comprised of mature species.  Native grasses flourish, wildflowers bloom much of the year.  Birds thrive year round, wildlife also abounds.  Eight miles of marked nature trails provide hikers and horseback riders an experience of exploration and sense of tranquility.  Marshall Creek and Denton Creek meander through the area and feed into Grapevine Lake to provide drinking water for surrounding communities.

Keep Trophy Club Wild (KTCW) a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, run by volunteers and funded by individual and public contributions is on a mission to offer public education and outreach that aim to protect TCPCA's flora and fauna, watershed for generations to come.

On the list for future expansion is a plan to construct a nature education center near TCPCA.

Trophy Club Park borders the northwest edge of Lake Grapevine in Denton County and is comprised of 877 acres that the Town of Trophy Club leases from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers for use as a public park.  The area is a part of the larger 11-million-acre Cross Timbers ecological zone that spans from southeastern Kansas, across the prairie and into central Texas.  Cross Timbers and the surrounding prairie were once home to at least two Native American tribes, the Kiowa and Comanche, before settlers arrived in the early 1800's.  The Native American utilized both the flora and fauna of the region in very efficient ways in order to sustain themselves.
