The Carpenter Park Athletic Complex is now open in Plano for games and practices.

The north side of the nearly 40-year-old complex had been under renovation since spring 2019. It reopened fully Aug. 18, according to a release from the Plano Parks & Recreation Department.

The $15.5 million project was funded by the city's 2017 bond and followed the 2015 Carpenter Park Master Plan.

Renovations include four newly installed artificial turf fields, two new restroom buildings and an additional trail to complete a loop around the entire park. The turf fields serve as upgrades to previously natural grass fields.

Field lights, poles and the playground—which now includes shade—were replaced.

Additional parking, a decorative fence and additional planted trees were all added as part of the renovations.

New irrigation was also added, and the entire site was re-graded, according to the department.

Some security fencing will remain around the fields at the north end of the park to protect them for the time being, according to parks department staff.

Carpenter Park, located at 6701 Coit Road, Plano, is designated for local athletic organizations and the general public for games and practices.
