Does Argyle have any City Parks or a Parks and Recreation Department?
At this time, the Town of Argyle does not own any property that would be available to the town to establish a park. The Town Council and the Argyle Economic Development Corporation realize the need for a community park, and as a result, has established a Parks Board to work on developing a plan for adding parks to our community. Many local organizations, including the Argyle Chamber of Commerce, Argyle Bluegrass Festival, and Keep Argyle Beautiful have been raising funds to contribute to the Parks Board.
How can a new resident get involved in the community?
There are many ways an Argyle newcomer can get involved in the community. Of course, the Argyle Chamber of Commerce invites all new businesses to join its organization to become involved in the community, but the Chamber also offers Residential Memberships to anyone who is interested in developing their community through special events. The local schools offer a wide variety of organizations including, but not limited to, Hilltop Elementary PTA, Argyle HS/MS PTSA, Argyle Youth Sports Association, Band Booster Club, and Athletic Booster Club. Other local charitable organizations include Communities Civic League, Argyle ISD Education Foundation, Metroport Meals on Wheels, Argyle Bluegrass Festival, and the Keep Argyle Beautiful Foundation.
What and where is the farm with a miniature train and pumpkin patch?
The Pumpkin Express is owned by a local Argyle resident who has built a miniature train around their property. Each October, the Pumpkin Express opens to the public for a fun experience for children and families to celebrate the Fall season. The pumpkin patch offers a wide selection of pumpkins to choose from, children enjoy the hay maze and bounce house, and the entire family can ride the miniature train.
