Bonnie Wenk Park
The McKinney Parks and Recreation Department held a grand opening celebration June 15 for Phase II of Bonnie Wenk Park. Renovations to the 170-acre park include an all-abilities park, a skywalk, zipline and ropes courses, concrete hike and bike trails, two additional parking lots, five play pods and two multipurpose sports fields.

The all-abilities playground is designed for children of all ages, abilities and needs. This playground is a joint effort between the city and the Rotary clubs of McKinney. Officials broke ground on the all-abilities playground in April 2017.

“We designed Bonnie Wenk Park to offer something for everyone,” Director of Parks and Recreation Michael Kowski said in a news release. “By adding these new amenities we hope that visitors will find something new and unexpected to explore.”
