Two New Dog Parks Opening in Plano This Year
Looking for somewhere new to take your four-legged friend? Many pet owners already visit the dog park at Jack Carter Park, but a second park just for pups is coming to East Plano this summer at Bob Woodruff Park, located at the Southeast corner of Park Blvd. and Shiloh Rd.
With five separate enclosures spanning over six acres and dedicated to small dogs, large dogs or senior dogs, you can decide which enclosure to let your dog play in based upon his specific needs. A central shade structure is on-site to allow rest and relaxation. Additionally, there are rinse stations at either side of the plaza.
Plano Parks and Recreation plans to host several special events at the park including visits from the Plano Animal Shelter adoption trailer as well as dog grooming and care demonstrations. Renovations are scheduled to be complete by late summer.
And guess what? A third Plano dog park is planned to be built at the new Windhaven Meadows Park on the west side of town in late 2019. Extending across five acres, this pup-friendly park will be located near the intersection of Windhaven Pkwy. and Spring Creek Pkwy. and is designed to integrate naturally with the existing terrain of the area. There will be decomposed granite pathways, shade structures, seating areas, drinking stations and pet waste receptacles.
So make plans to check out these new dog-friendly destinations once open this year. It’ll be a treat for both you and your furry friend.Jack Carter Dog Park > Dog Park at Bob Woodruff Park > Windhaven Meadows Park >
