CURRENT PARK PLANNING PROJECTS

Below is more information on individual master plans for parks and trails currently under construction and/or renovation (view a location map here):

Bob Woodruff Southeast Trail Repair
This project includes the relocation and replacement of a section of existing trail within Bob Woodruff Park, southeast of Park Boulevard, that is experiencing significant erosion issues. Improvement designs are in their final stages. Once the project has selected a contractor through the bidding process, construction is expected to begin in 2020.

Carpenter Park Renovation
Construction is underway on the north side of Carpenter Park. Major construction elements include: four artificial turf fields, re-grading the entire north side, two new restrooms, a playground, additional parking, new field lights, new irrigation and a trail connection along Denham Way.

Cheyenne Park Light Renovation
Replacement of all athletic field lights and poles with LED fixtures and concrete poles.

Chisholm 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, South
The Parks and Recreation Department is 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. Construction of the project is expected to begin early 2020.

Emergency Trail Marker System
Emergency Trail markers are being deployed on Chisholm Trail to improve trail safety and emergency access. Emergency response teams will now be able to determine exactly where on a trail they need to respond and how to best access that location. Once the pilot program is evaluated, the system will then be expanded to other Plano trails. (Read project FAQ’s here)

Erosion Control at Legacy, Russell Creek and Oak Point Trails
This project consists of erosion control/stabilization improvements at the Legacy Trail Pedestrian Bridge, Russell Creek Trail and Independence Parkway and Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve Pond. Improvements include the construction of gabion mattresses, concrete rip-rap and embankments, and a ledge stone wall. The project is expected to begin fall 2019. There will be trail closings and detours for the erosion control projects.  

Evans Park
Plans are underway for renovations to the playground at Evans Park.

High Point Park Tennis Center
The renovations will begin with the building of a new parking lot along Spring Creek Parkway and the construction of a new two-story pro shop. Once the new pro shop is completed, demolition of the old facility will take place and a new center court will be constructed. The project also will include new fencing and windscreens, new walkways, court resurfacing, and a refresh of the children’s playground area. The cost of the project is $4.5 million and is expected to be complete in late 2020.

Legacy Trail North
This project consists of constructing a trail connection that will address an existing gap within Legacy Trail north of Hedgcoxe Road. Improvement designs are in their final stages. Once the project has selected a contractor through the bidding process, construction of Legacy Trail across McDermott road is expected to begin in 2020.

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

Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve Improvements

Oak Point Recreation Center Outdoor Pool

Project plans include +/- 500 linear feet of retaining wall along the golf course side of Cottonwood Creek, with construction currently underway.

Plano Transit Village Veloweb
The project includes constructing a new trail along the DART red line property between President George Bush Turnpike and 12th Place.

Construction of the new trail is currently underway.
