PLANO PARKS & RECREATION MASTER PLAN
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:
Bluebonnet Trail Repair: Alma to Blue Ridge
This project includes removal and replacement of Bluebonnet Trail between Alma Drive and Blue Ridge Trail. The new trail will be 12’ wide to meet current standards. A pedestrian hybrid beacon will also be installed to facilitate trail users crossing Alma Drive. Bluebonnet Trail will be closed in this section during construction.
Blue Ridge Park
Construction is scheduled to begin in Jan/Feb. 2018. Work includes a new park shelter, two new playgrounds, new walkways, a new irrigation system, and new sidewalk connection to the parking lot at Thomas Elementary School.
Carpenter Park Renovation
Renovation began in May 2017. Plans include a skate park with a shade shelter, new lights, additional parking, new restrooms, aesthetic improvements to the drainage channel and the addition of four detention ponds. The fields on the south side of Carpenter Park are closed and temporary fencing has been installed around the area. Eventually, a new traffic signal will be constructed at Bluebonnet Trail and Coit Road.
Cottonwood Creek Greenbelt, North
The Parks and Recreation Department will be adding trail from Los Rios Boulevard to Chaparral Road. Bids were recently received for this project and are under evaluation.

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 will get under way in early 2018 to solicit input and create a master plan for the park.

White Rock Trail Park
The trail within this park is over 30 years old and in need of complete replacement. Plans are in progress for the removal and replacement of trail throughout the park in generally the same alignment.
Windhaven Meadows Park
Improvements at the park include parking, restrooms, a large pavilion, a dog park, a playground, trails and associated improvements. Construction manager at risk services are bidding in January 2018 and are estimated to be selected by the end of February.
