Celebrate Father's Day on Sunday, June 18th

Father's Day in Denton is full of adventures and experiences. Take dad to dinner, explore the great outdoors, find the perfect gift or attend one of the many events going on in Denton that weekend. Here are a few ideas he’s sure to love.

Take Him Outdoors!

For adventurous dads who love the outdoors, take him hiking on one of our 27 scenic trails. One of our favorite spots is Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center with an outer loop of a trails system that totals 3.2 miles - perfect for 5K trail runners! If your dad loves the water, Lake Ray Roberts is just a few miles outside of Denton. With its many beach areas, fishing spots, boating docks and more it is a dream come true for any outdoorsman.


Hit the Links!

If your dad enjoys spending his day on the green, there are plenty of area courses to make his day. Wildhorse Golf Club in Robson Ranch is a public course, but there are many others to choose from for members such as Denton Country Club, Oakmont Country Club and Lantana Country Club. Or, if your dad would just prefer to hit a few balls, Northlake Recreation Center and Park has a driving range.


Get Competitive!

Who doesn’t love some friendly competition? Denton has plenty of options if you’re keeping score. Denton has Horse’s AxeIronwood Axe Throwing, Andy B’s, Bowlero, and disc golf just to name a few. Afterward treat him to dinner and a beer - win, lose or draw!

Pro-tip: You can keep your axe from The Horse's Axe for a small fee and go back whenever you like!

Buy Him a Beer!

Toast your dad to a job well done by buying him a beer! Celebrate with craft brews at Denton County Brewing Co, or East Side, or Miss Angeline's! Make sure to stop by the Bearded Monk for a draught, darts, and some beer-to-go. If beer isn’t his thing, spend your afternoon at Eastside Denton – they have one of the largest selections of whisky around!
