“This particular project is part of a collection of work aimed at upgrading our parks system east of Hwy 75,” Parks & Recreation Director Michael Kowski said in an email.
The $3.1 million Cottonwood Park redesign project is funded through parkland dedication fees as well as through the McKinney Community Development Corp., Kowski said.
Work on the park, which is located at 212 McMakin St., McKinney, began in April and is expected to finish before the end of the year. The renovations were outlined in the McKinney 2017 Parks Master Plan, Kowski said. The plan was developed with guidance from various public input meetings. Cottonwood Park was identified among 10 parks in McKinney that would benefit from renovations. The other parks are North Park, Mary Will Craig Park, Murphy Park, Wattley Park, Finch Park, Old Settlers Park, Towne Lake Park, E.A. Randles Park and Katherine B. Winniford Park.
