In 2008, the Rough Riders (Frisco's minor league baseball club) added another Groundhog to its mascot team. Daisy, a female groundhog cheerleader is a mascot that parades around the visiting team's dugout during games, making sure the fans are enjoying themselves. Daisy is equipped with a very furry disposition, and gets the crowd excited when she heads throughout the stands adding mayhem to the minor league baseball environment.
During a recent chat with Daisy, she also mentioned she likes long walks in the moonlight, and the smell of fresh prairie in the morning. Despite being a ground "hog", she is very concious of her weight and eats a healthy dinner every night.
This whole area has an enormous number of scuptures. One of the most significant areas is the Hall Office Park which has the private collection of Craig Hall of 38 Texas artists on display for the public to view. It is free.
In addition to the 17 scupltures which are outdoors, there are more than 100 works created by artists from all over the world including drawings, sketches, paintings, glass art and photography.
In addition to the Texas Sculpture Garden, inside Hall Office Park are
• Cross Creek School
• Frisco Family YMCA
• Gateway National Bank
• Hall Office Park Conference Center
Fondest memory: One-half mile north of SH 121 just off Dallas Parkway in Frisco, Texas within the Hall Office Park development.
Exterior collection open daily dawn to dusk; interior art open weekdays 8:00am to 6:00pm and Saturdays 9:00am till noon.
The Chamber of Commerce is right on Main Street in the old downtown part of Frisco… they have some info on what the city has to offer and I suspect are better at aiding businesses and newcomers to the area than to tourist seeking attractions in the area. When I asked the receptionist about the Sculptured Gardens and where they were located at, she was very vague about what I was talking about and yet this gardens are quite a big part of the new development in Frisco.

Sitting around the campfire planning where to travel next across the wild, wild west.
I guess it is just like me planning where I want to go see next. It was very adventorous for the cowboys to roam the large state of Texas. I think it is the largest state of all United States.
The pillars are going up........soon to be the new Acropolis of Texas....
Can there be one? I think so....I gave them the vision........
Favorite thing: If you make the picture bigger, you can see the longhorn cattle head engraved in the pillar. I guess they are Texas symbol and very unique looking with the long horns.
