The once quiet and open fields of the Windhaven Meadows Park site are now bustling with activity as crews work to develop one of Plano’s next great attractions.
Upon completion, Windhaven Meadows Park will include a dog park, an all-abilities playground and plenty of green space.

Once the site of Plano’s historic Collinwood House, the future Windhaven Meadows Park will span 120 acres.
The 19th-century home is thought to be one of the oldest standing structures in Plano. The Haggard family—who has deep historic roots in Plano—relocated the house to one of their properties in September.
The playground at Windhaven Meadows Park will feature a streambed-style splash pad. The playground will be physically accessible to caregivers and people in wheelchairs. Part of the funding comes from a $1 million donation from Liberty Mutual.
It will also be designed to accommodate children with autism spectrum disorder who may have different sensory needs than other children.
Over 350 parking spaces will be available at Windhaven Meadows Park.
Other construction projects at the park include the all-abilities playground and accompanying splash pad, restrooms and a prairie-style pavilion.
