We are looking ahead and planning for future parks and recreation programs for the next 5 to 20 years.


Below is more information on individual master plans for parks and trails currently under construction and/or renovation:

Carpenter Park Renovation
The guaranteed maximum price has been received from the construction manager at risk – Dean Construction. Final negotiations are being finalized. Council approval is anticipated in December. Construction will begin shortly after Council approval.

Chisolm Trail Erosion Control at San Simeon Place (Pleasant Valley Dr/Spring Creek Pkwy)
An existing erosion control wall within the creek has been undermined and will be reconstructed.

Cottonwood Creek Greenbelt, North
The Parks and Recreation Department will be adding trail from Los Rios Boulevard to Chaparral Road.

Cottonwood Creek Greenbelt, South

We are developing plans for enhancements to the parkland surrounding Cottonwood Creek. This project will ultimately connect the parkland to the existing Cottonwood Creek Greenbelt south of Park Boulevard.

Dog Park at Bob Woodruff
A dog park is in design and will be located at the southeast corner of Park Boulevard and Shiloh Road.

Evans Park
Future improvements to Evans Park Playground are in the planning stage, and we invite residents to participate in the process.

High Point Park Tennis Center
Originally built in 1978, planning and design work is in progress for renovations to the center including a new pro-shop, additional parking and overall improvements to the facility and the grounds. Due to significant increases in the cost of construction material, staff are working with the architects to review several value engineering design options to bring the project within budget, without sacrificing the integrity of the project plan. 

Legacy Trail North
Construction of Legacy Trail across McDermott road is expected to begin in 2019.

Legacy Trail south of Legacy Drive
Construction of Legacy Trail between Legacy Drive and north of Tennyson Parkway is underway.

Liberty Recreation Center
Planning and design work is in the schematic design phase for overall renovations to the center.

Urban Forestry
We are replacing trees in medians across Plano over the next several months due to the serious decline in health and safety to the trees in the medians and to provide a healthy urban forest for Plano residents. The three locations are:
•Park Boulevard from Avenue P to Avenue R and Peachtree Lane to Shiloh Road
•Coit Road from Plano Parkway to President George Bush Turnpike
•Parker Road between Coit Road and Mission Ridge Road and Independence Parkway to Deep Valley Trail

Approximately 160 new trees will be planted in their place as well as irrigation, turf and a new median design. The new design will include concrete edging to separate the turf and trees. Woodchips will also be laid around the base of the trees to keep the roots cool and help them retain moisture. Currently, the stumps are being removed from the sites, starting with Park Boulevard and moving west to Coit Road and Parker Road. You can expect some lane closures while the crews are working in the medians.

Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve Improvements
The project includes a new concrete recreational trail, large concrete parking lot, all-weather restroom, bike repair stand and benches, reservable pavilion, lawn activities area and playground. Construction is expected to be complete in late 2019, weather permitting.

Park Pond Restoration
The project includes mobilization, erosion control, site fencing, trail and roadway traffic control, trail and curb removal and replacement where needed, fish and aquatic wildlife relocation, re-sodding disturbed areas, and removal of pond silt and off-site disposal. This project is for the removal of silt from the small pond at White Rock Trail Park and the ponds at Prairie Meadow and Hoblitzelle parks.

Sam Johnson Recreation Center (formerly Plano Senior Recreation Center)
The entire center will be renovated and expanded, creating new spaces.

Plano Transit Village Veloweb
Construction of a new trail along the DART red line property between President George Bush Turnpike and 12th Place will begin in 2018.

Rowlett Creek Greenbelt Master Plan
This location is where the Los Rios Golf Course currently operates. The City purchased the land in 2014 with grant assistance from Collin County, and it will be reprogrammed to city park land in late 2019. A public process began in early 2018 to solicit input and create a master plan for the park.

Stoney Hollow Park
Improvements to Stoney Hollow Park are in the planning stage, and a consultant has been selected to provide a proposal to prepare documents for bidding and the construction of additional elements within the existing park.

White Rock Trail Park
The trail within this park is over 30 years old and in need of complete replacement. Construction is set to begin in late 2018 (weather permitting) for the removal and replacement of trail throughout the park in generally the same alignment. During the same time frame, there will also be a project to remove silt from the small pond by the road. The trail project and the silt removal project will be implemented by two different contractors who are coordinating their work.

Windhaven Meadows Park
Improvements at the park include parking, restrooms, a large pavilion, a dog park, a playground, trails and associated improvements.
