Plano Development: Klyde Warren Clone
As Plano is quickly becoming more urbanized with restaurants and retail shops, the number of park areas in town are beginning to decline. This past Monday, City of Plano’s Parks and Recreation presented a master plan to Plano City Council during a public hearing. In the master plan were long-term goals and needs for the city’s park, recreational, and nature facilities, along with new ideas. Among these ideas was a deck park, similar to that of Klyde Warren Park in Downtown Dallas.
The deck park is proposed to be located over the Dallas North Tollway, serving as a link between Legacy Town Center and Legacy West.
As of now, there is no budget set for the proposed deck park. No costs have been estimated and funding has not been granted.
Although there is currently no projected opening date for the proposed deck park, people who live and work in Plano are already elated over the idea.
While the idea of a deck park sounds intriguing, the idea is still in its infancy, and there are a lot of factors that go into the execution of the idea.
While plans for a deck park were approved via a five-to-one vote, it is currently sitting low on City of Plano’s priorities, as they plan on touching up the city’s current park and recreational facilities first.
