A glow-in-the-dark park will light up Farmers Branch this fall

Fireflies won’t be the only thing lighting up the evening.

A one-of-a-kind playground is coming to Farmers Branch this summer — and get this — it glows in the dark.

Located at Oran Good Park (13300 Dennis Ln.,~40 minutes northeast of downtown), Joya is named for the Spanish word for jewel and will be the first glow-in-the-dark playground in Texas.

Joya will feature:

  • 18,000-sqft main playground (for ages 6+) with a six-level climbing sphere, zipline, swings, slides, obstacle course, hanging hammocks, and seating that glows
  • 7,000-sqft fenced tot playground (for ages 2-5) with a natural sensory play area and turf

Joya is funded by $4 million from the Federal American Rescue Plan Act and a $750,000 grant from Texas Parks & Wildlife.
Construction will begin later this year and is slated to wrap this fall. Keep up with the progress on Facebook.
